  1. Inspect 5 half-pint jars for cracks and rings for rust, discarding any defective ones. Immerse in simmering water until jam is ready. Wash new, unused lids and rings in warm soapy water.
  2. Mix peaches with lemon juice in a large pot immediately after chopping to prevent peaches from turning brown. Place pot over medium heat.
  3. Mix 1/4 cup of the sugar with pectin and add it to the pot with the peaches. Stir well. Slowly bring to a full rolling boil that does not stop bubbling when stirred. Add the remaining sugar and stir well, scraping the bottom of the pot, to fully dissolve the sugar. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in amaretto liqueur.
  5. Ladle peach jam immediately into the prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a clean knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars to remove any air bubbles. Wipe rims with a moist paper towel to remove any spills. Top with lids and tightly screw on rings.
  6. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars 2 inches apart into the boiling water using a holder. Pour in more boiling water to cover jars by at least 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil, cover, and process for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart. Let rest for 24 hours without moving the jars. Gently press the center of each lid with a finger to ensure the lid does not move up or down. Remove the rings for storage and store in a cool, dark area.

This is best recipe I have made so far this year!! If you are making jams as gifts you should add this to your list for is amazing!!.. I made this again but for some reason it seems t...

I love peaches and I love amaretto. This just didn't work for me. The jam never set up, and I couldn't taste the amaretto. I made a batch of plain peach jam right after I made this, set up fine...

Fantastic. Mine turned out a little thin, I used 4 oz of peach jello for the pectin and a little less sugar. Next time I will use a full 6 oz. I plan to use mine on ice cream- yummy!

Love using the Amaretto with the peaches. My boys loved licking the spoon after ladling so I can’t wait to taste!
