Peach Jam

Prep Time - 15mins
Cook Time - 12mins


4 1/2 cups just ripe peaches or mix of peaches and nectarines stoned & cut into bite sized chunks

4 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup water

2 tbsp lemon juice + skin of ½ an unwaxed lemon

Peach Jam


1. Put 3 small plates in the freezer to test set.

2.Put all the ingredients in a preserving pan or similar and heat gently to dissolve the sugar crystals (stirring frequently with a wooden spoon).

3. Bring to a rolling boil for 10 minutes and keep stirring.

4. Take off the heat and check for set by putting a few drops on a chilled saucer.

5. Allow to cool for 30 second in the fridge and if it crinkles when a finger is pushed through it, it’s ready.

6. If not boil for another 2 minutes and repeat this testing process until a set is achieved.

7. Remove any scum with a spoon if necessary.

8. If the jam is looking a bit too chunky use a potato masher to gently squash the fruit.

9. Ladle into warm sterilised jars and apply lids or wax discs and cellophane lids.

10. Makes 3 standard sized jars.
