Peach Jam Recipe

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017


This recipe takes those peaches you’ve been growing (or if you’re here in Maine where peaches have a hard time growing, the ones that are at the grocery store) and turns them into jam. Serve during breakfast, give as a gift or keep stored for the winter.

What you’ll need:

  • 6 pounds peaches
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3½ cups granulated sugar


  1. Peel, pit and chop peaches and place in a large saucepan or pot; add lemon juice. Place a metal spoon in the refrigerator to chill (for testing the readiness of the jam later).
  2. Mash peaches and lemon juice using a large spoon or potato masher. Stir in sugar and bring to a boil.
  3. While boiling, continuously stir mixture until the jam thickens and reaches 210-220°F; about 25-30 minutes.
  4. To test for set point, remove saucepan from heat. Dip chilled spoon into jam, and allow jam to run off spoon; jam should slowly fall off spoon in one thickened clump. If it is runny, return jam to medium heat and simmer 2-4 minutes before re-testing. Using large spoon, skim foam from top of jam.
  5. Transfer jam to canning jars and cap with lids. Let cool to room temperature, store (can be refrigerated for up to 3 weeks after opening).
