Homemade Jam Recipe | Vanilla Peach Jam

Vanilla Peach Jam

5 cups of peeled, pitted & chopped peaches. (about 3lbs)
3 cups/600 g of granulated sugar
Zest & juice of 1 lemon – about 3tbsp
1 vanilla bean pod scraped or about 2-3 Tbsp (taste test how much you want as there are different vanilla quality grades)
1 (3-ounce/85ml) packet liquid pectin

  1. Prepare water bath canner and get the jars & lids ready (be sure to know your basic canning safety). Need a water bath canner? We bought this set and it’s perfect for beginners!
  2. Combine the peaches & sugar in a large non-reactive pot. Cook on medium heat allowing peach juices to release. Slowly bring to a boil and add lemon juice and vanilla.
  3. Let the sauce cook over med-high heat for 15-20 mins stirring frequently until it looks syrupy. I use a hand blender at this stage to break up the peaches so it’s not chunky (be careful it can splatter & it’s hot)
