Summer In a Jar | Homemade Peach&Cinnamon Jam

Tuesday, October 8, 2013

It is the easiest jam I have ever made. All that's required is throwing the ingredients into a pot and boiling for about half an hour. Then simply ladle the jam into jars and process these in a water bath to make them shelf-safe.

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.
