Best Peach Jam Recipe Ever

Tips: Get everything in place before you begin, because there are points in the process where you won’t be able to stop and get what you need. Don’t be tempted to increase the spice amounts; you want the peach flavor to shine through. Use the amounts below, follow the directions, and your jam will come out perfect every time. Overcooking and using the wrong proportion of ingredients are the main causes of runny jam.

8 cups pitted, peeled* peaches, cut in a 1” dice
A large bowl of ice water
Zest of half a lemon
4 T. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
6 T. classic fruit pectin
7 cups white sugar
1 T. finely chopped crystallized ginger
¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground cloves
¼ t. salt
