Quick, Easy & Thrifty Peach Jam

peach jam

Our 293ml Jam Jars are ideal for this recipe

800gms tinned peaches (in juice not syrup); tip away juice from one tin;

Chop up the peaches and place them in a large (non aluminium) jam pan, with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and the liquid from the other 2 tins, and cook slowly in the liquid until soft. Use a potato masher to mash about half of the peaches, so that some of the pieces are larger and some smaller.

Off the heat, add 1Kg of granulated sugar and a knob of butter and stir till dissolved, then add 1 sachet of silver spoon pectin with sugar and stir well until it is completely dissolved throughout the pan.

Bring to a vigourous boil, stirring for 4 minutes and NO LONGER!

Pot up.

    1. Hi Jane,

      I would think there would be enough there to fill 4 one pound jars but I would sterile 5 or 6 to be on the safe side. They will always keep sterile until next time as long as you don’t open them.
