Perfect for canning! This spiced peach spread is very rich to the taste. Use it on biscuits, bread, or French toast. It's truly a taste of fall! Store in a cool, dark area.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat five 12-ounce jars in simmering water until ready for use. Wash lids and rings in warm soapy water.

  • Mix peaches, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice in a large pot. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, until peaches are soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Mash peaches with an immersion blender or potato masher to desired size and texture. Return to the heat; continue cooking jam until thickened, about 10 minutes more.

  • Pack jam into hot jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Wipe rims with a clean, damp cloth. Top with lids and screw on rings.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower in jars using a holder, placing them 2 inches apart. Pour in more boiling water to cover the jars by at least 1 inch. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.

  • Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool, about 12 hours. Press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that lid does not move up or down and seal is tight.

Made it yesterday and my husband liked it on is waffle. I made it in my cast iron pot cooked it to about 205 F. It is a little soft but very good. I used raw sugar so it turned out a little darker but that is ok. Will be giving some away for Christmas. Will be making it again next year. Read More

Took me a lot longer than recipe stated to make. You will need about 15 LARGE peaches for this recipe and it is better if they are slightly overripe as they will peel much easier. I used a hand mixer instead of a potato masher and it worked ok but the jam was still a little too stringy for my taste. The processing only worked for one of my jars- the other did not seal properly but it should be fine in the fridge. Additionally it only made 1 1/2 jars of jam- not 5. Read More

I've never had or made a spicy jam before, but decided to try this recipe for the few peaches I had that needed to get used. It is delicious! Since I just made about half, I am keeping it in the fridge, rather than canning. Try it, you'll like it! Read More

This jam is delicous! I love cinnamon so I changed the cinnamon to 1 tsp. I didn't have all spice so I added 1/4 tsp of ground cloves. I gave this out last year as Christmas gifts and the family was sad when we used our last jar. Definitely a keeper!! Read More

Tastes delicious and works with other stone fruit as well. Had some on toaster waffles this morning. The only thing I think it might need is pectin or some other thickener. I say might because if you re not a fan of runny jam (I don t care) you might want it thicker. But tastes great and works as is for me. Read More

You can also substitute pears in this recipe. It's delicious. I give some away at Christmas to friends and they always ask in January and February if I have anymore left. We like it on homemade biscuits with our morning tea. Read More
