Easy Peach Jam

Here is a really easy recipe to make homemade peach jam.


9 -- Medium Peaches
2 -- Tbs. Lemon Juice
1 -- Box of Pectin
2 -- Cups of Sugar


1. Peel the peaches. Easiest way to peel them is to get a pan of water on the stove boiling. Put the peaches in for a couple of minutes, take them out of pan and peel. If the peaches are ripe the peels will just come right off by doing this method.

2. Pit the peaches and cut them into small bites. You can also use the blender to make the peaches smooth if you don't want any lumps in your jam.

3. Add the peaches to a 6 or 8 quart pan with the lemon juice. Slowly add the pectin while stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly for about five minutes.

4. Add the sugar half a cup at a time while stirring the whole time. Taste the mixture to make sure it is sweet enough.

5. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil for three minutes while continuing to stir.

6. Pour the mixture into your jars and can.
