I love canning peach jam every summer. I took my boys to go pick peaches at a local orchard this year. It was really fun and I look forward to making homemade peach jam again this year.

Peach jam is very easy to make. You can make it with either liquid or powdered pectin. Instructions for each are listed below.

Peach Jam

  • 4 1/4 c. crushed peaches
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 7 c. sugar
  • 1 pouch liquid pectin

Measure crushed peaches into a large sauce pan. Add lemon juice and sugar, stirring well. Stirring constantly, place on high heat and bring quickly to a full boil with bubbles over the entire surface. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in pectin. Skim.

Immediately pour hot jam into hot, sterile jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel. Screw on lids. Process in a boiling water canner.
