Ingredients (makes 8 small jars):
- 6 pounds peaches
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 4 cups sugar
- 2 tbs ground cinnamon
1. Peel and pit the peaches, roughly chop and place in a large pot. Add the lemon juice and cinnamon and mash them together to desired consistency.
2. Stir in the sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to boil, stirring frequently, until the jam thickens, about 30 minutes (you can easily test the thickness by dropping a little bit of jam onto a cold plate).
3. Ladle the jam into sterilized jars and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
