Ingredients
  • 4 ½ cups granulated white sugar
  • 4 large or 5 medium-size ripe peaches see exact measurement for peaches below in step 3
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 ½ ounces (98g) of powdered pectin (I use 2 boxes of SureJell which is readily available at most larger supermarkets. Each box is 1.75 ounces or 49g.)
  • cups water
Instructions
  1. Wash and rinse glass jars (or plastic containers) and lids in the dishwasher or with hot soapy water. Dry thoroughly.
  2. Cut the peaches in half from top to bottom. Remove the pit then slice each half into ¼-inch slices. Dice the slices into ¼-inch piecesor smaller. (I like to use my chopper for this. See post above.)

  3. Measure exactly 3 cups of the diced peaches into a large microwave-safe bowl. Add the sugar and lemon juice and stir well for 1 minute.
  4. Place the bowl in the microwave on high power for 3 minutes. (Mixture will not cook, but will become hot enough for the sugar to dissolve). Remove from microwave and stir well for another minute.

  5. Allow this peach/sugar mixture to sit for 1 hour, giving it a good stir about after about 30 minutes.

  6. Take a taste to make sure the sugar is dissolved. If it still has a bit of a grainy texture, give it another 3-minute stint in the microwave then stir until sugar is well dissolved. (When the sugar is well-dissolved the mixture will actually deepen in color and lose it's "cloudiness". That's when you're ready for the next step.)

  7. Mix the 1½ cups water and pectin in a medium -ize saucepan. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute, adjusting the heat so the mixture doesn't boil over.. Add to peach mixture; stir for 3 minutes (no cheating).

  8. Fill all the jars to within ½-inch of tops. Wipe off top edges of containers and cover with the lids. Let the jam stand at room temperature 24 hours or until nicely set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 1 year. (If frozen, thaw in refrigerator before using.)
