Peach Jam

After picking up a huge box of peaches from Keremeos for only $10, I set about figuring out things to do with them all. A lot of them ended up in canning projects:

  • Sliced peaches in light syrup ~9 pints
  • Peach Rosemary Jam ~4 pints
  • Spicy Peach Pepper Preserve ~4 pints
  • Peach Pineapple and Rum Jam ~ 4 pints 

SP and I ate a lot too, and we also froze about 10 peaches sliced.

For the record, peaches must be 100% ripe before you blanche them, don't skimp on the pectin and check to see if the jam is set using a plate in the freezer, or whatever suits your fancy.
