Pretty Peach Jam
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min. + cooling
I made this yesterday and while it is tasty it is more marmalade than jam. Did I not use enough peaches? Peaches from the orchard were small so I peeled and sliced about 4 cups. I wanted jars and used a water bath (10 min) to can. Since I did that, I am wondering if I really needed 2 boxes of pectin? I got 12 pint jars - maybe I needed more peaches. Any advice? I would make this again with more peaches I think.
This jam was easy, beautiful and DELICIOUS!!! Of all the jams I have made, folks have raved over it . I get asked when I make this again, please let me know!!
Made this today w/variations: used zest only of the orange then pureed it w/the orange and cherries. I left the crushed pineapple and peach wedges as is for a more chunky, jam-like product. I added a couple whacks of butter at the final boil to reduce foaming. Water bath canned at 10 minutes. It is so gorgeous and tastes of Summer!! Will be making this again!!
I just made this jam, and I use exactly what the recipe called for. It was very easy to prepare, and was already jelling before I got all the liquid in my containers. I tasted the jam, when it had cooled, and it was delicious. If you are looking for a very easy freezer jam recipe for peaches, I recommend this recipe.
I am going to make this recipe this season but I am wanting to can it. I live at 2,000 ft so I always add to my hot water baths but now I am concerned about making this and it not remaining good and am wondering if I should use my pressure cooker. Can anyone give me some good advice?

Yes. I canned mine in a hot water bath. no problems.
I love this combination of flavors. It's probably my favorite of the peach jam recipes I made last fall.
Have a question on this recipe. Can it be canned in water bath as well as freeze?
