Peach Jam

Peach Jam

Jam is a staple in my house. My kids eat it just about every day on their sandwiches for lunch at school, and I find many uses for it in the kitchen when I’m cooking too (check out my Sriracha chicken or glazed ham to see what I’m talking about!) And if my grandma ever taught me anything at all, it was to never ever go out and buy a jar of overpriced, overly sweet – and most of all, boring – jam that you’ll find on the grocery store shelves. Instead, make your own with whatever happens to be in season and you’ll be able to control the sweetness, as well as come up with different combinations you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. And while this peach jam might not be the most unique blend, it certainly does taste a whole lot better than that mass manufactured stuff.

8 or 9 peaches, peeled with their pits removed $2.97
1 1/2 cups white sugar $0.28
1 lemon, for zest and juice $0.35

Total cost $3.60

1.) Place peaches in a medium-sized saucepan along with sugar, lemon zest, and juice. Stir to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Bring up to a boil and then lower heat to medium-low. Allow to simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally, until the mixture resembles a jam consistency.

2.) Serve and enjoy!
