Do you like peaches? Do you have a local market near you? Don’t wait any longer! Grab some end of season peaches and make this easy peach jam, that you can use up during winter time. Or now. 🙂

One of my favorite summer fruits {in addition to all berries} is peaches! There is nothing better than a  super sweet and soft peach melting in my mouth.
I got two huge bags of sweet, ripe {very ripe} peaches at a local market for $5 …YES…you hear me, for $5.

I made this excellent peach jam that only needed a few ingredients and I filled several of these cute little jars.

I did not use sugar but AGAVE nectar which is a sweetener, that is made from the core of an agave plant. HERE you can read more about Agave. Of course, you can use regular sugar if you wish.
The jam turned out very appetizing, and I truly don’t think it will last too long. It is a little bit runnier than those you buy from the stores, but we love it, and we know it’s homemade.

I did not use a super serious canning method; I only boiled the filled jars for about 10 minutes in a big pot.
My lids sealed perfectly. If you find jars with unsealed lids after boiling, put them in your refrigerator and use them up earlier.

…my ripe peaches.

  2. This looks so delicious! We have several peach farms where I live and I've been loving the peaches this year. Thanks for stopping by my facebook page! I'm so glad you linked up to Frugal Crafty Home–I hope to see you back this Sunday evening!

  3. What a great deal!!! Making my own jams is definitely on my to-do list, and I just stole/borrowed jars from my moms huge stash, so maybe I'll have to give this a try! Thanks for sharing this at the Pinworthy Project Party!

  4. this looks and sounds delicious! our neighbor has a peach tree and never uses them… last year i watched them rot and i decided i wouldn’t let that happen again. but when i went to go get them, there were none. i don’t think it even produced this year. 🙁

  5. Sounds tasty! Just curious if the agave makes it more runny since the recipe doesn’t call for pectin?
