Homemade peach jam recipe is very handy to make but not commonly practice in the Subcontinent. The best part of this homemade jam is that you choose one of your favorite local available fruits and as you will see below it doesn’t take more than 45 mins (from washing till cooling) to make it at home.
With summers on the way, peaches are available everywhere these days, market is full of this crunchy tasty fruit.
To be honest, I grade peaches a bit unlucky fruit as unfortunately it has to compete with the giant of the fruits; the King of Fruits: the Mango 🙂
Preparation Time: 45 mins
Difficulty Level: Easy
With Peach Jam Recipe used at home firstly, you control the amount of sugar in your jam, then you don’t need to add any preservatives, and finally of course it is freshly made by your own hands! Can you control this much in market bought bottled jam?
I don’t see any reason why one should not make it fresh every fortnight? I am sure you are convinced 🙂
So lets begin 🙂
Ingredients & Method for this Easy Peach Jam Recipe
Fresh ripe peaches (Aarhoo) – 4 medium size
Lemon juice – 1 tbsp
Brown sugar – 1/2 cup (you can use white sugar too)
A little water
First, we will peel off the skin of the peaches:
1. Make 2 long cuts each on the top sides of the peaches.
2. Now, put the peaches into a pot of already boiling water. Boil peaches for 1 minute.
3. Now, remove peaches from the boiling water, and straight put them into cold water, again for a minute.
4. After one the skins will easily be peeled off, from the cuts you made in step 1.

4. Cook more for 15 minutes, until the peaches are very soft and the juice is separated.
5. Stir continuously, and mash the peaches using a spoon or stir.
6. A little pulpy jam is also some times preferred.
7. The jam needs some time to thicken to the right consistency
8. To know if the jam is ready, dip a small spoon and if it ready it will leave a shiny patchy trail behind the spoon.
