Recipe amount: 10-12 medium jars

Peach jam

Ingredients
 
6 lbs peaches, chopped
4 lbs sugar
 


Preparation steps:
  1. Bring to simmer (20 minutes) in a large pot.
  2. Simmer for 3-4 hours, mix every 20-30 minutes. Leave the pot lid slightly open, so that the jam doesn't overflow during cooking.
  3. Use a potato masher to break down the large pieces of fruit in the cooked jam, but don't puree the jam.
  4. In a separate large pot, sterilize the jars and lids using boiling water.
  5. Pour the hot jam into the jars and seal immediately.
