What better to do in a storm than make peach cobbler jam?
Really it was just peach jam with cinnamon, which makes it taste more like dessert than jam.
This time I did it from memory and followed my instincts… I let it cook down for a while until it started to form a skin on top and looked like it was starting to jell.
We liked it…. now if I can only figure out how to make a hurricane-prevention jam. 🙂
12 peaches, peeled and chopped
4.5 cups sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 packet sure-jell low sugar pectin
1 tsp cinnamon
Directions: Peel and chop peaches. Mix 1/2 cup sugar with pectin in small bowl. Add to peaches and cook until starts to boil. Add remaining sugar and boil vigorously, stirring, until starts to thicken and water cooks down. Pour into sterilized jars and leave out to cool 12-24 hours. Makes 7 half-pint jars.
