Crystallized ginger adds a tasty bite to this sweet peach jam. Reduce the amount of sugar if your peaches are really ripe.
A bounty of fresh peaches is a terrible thing to waste. Don't let them go bad — use your farmers' market haul to make delicious jams that you can enjoy months after peach season.
This is a great jam for peaches that are not picture-perfect but nice and ripe. Combined with ginger and amaretto liqueur, the peach jam tastes divine.
I have made this jam on several occasions and just finished a batch so I thought I'd write a review. It is the best ever jam and pretty easy, however, the prep time takes longer than 10 minutes! It takes 10 minutes just to boil the water in order to dunk the peaches in for peeling! Also, no time is allotted to the canning process, which is time consuming since you have a huge pot of water to boil prior to sterilizing all your jars and utensils. Bottom line, this jam takes a couple of hours start to finish and more if you're doubling the recipe, but worth every minute of it! Note on doubling the recipe: Do not triple or quadruple recipe unless you have industrial size pots!
These fragrant preserves are simple to make, and may be stored. Toast and biscuits will never taste the same again!
Slushies are a wonderful refreshing drink and a great way to use up ripe fruit. Ripe peaches are delicious in a slushie and taste great with a little bit of ginger.
