Ingredients

  • 4 peaches (perfectly ripe)
  • ½ cup sugar (increase up to ¾ths of a cup if you want a sweeter jam or if the peaches are not sweet enough)
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick

Instructions

  • Cut a cross just through the skin on the bottom of each peach (not the side that attaches to the stem) and place them in boiling water for a minute. Remove, dunk in cold water to stop the cooking, cool. You can now easily peel the peach by pulling at the skin where you made the cut.
  • Cut each peach in half, remove the pit, then chop the peach into a fine dice.
  • Place all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed pan. Stir and crush the peaches with a potato masher. If you want a really smooth consistency, process the peaches first in a food processor until they are almost a puree.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil. Stir with a ladle and crush the peaches down with the potato masher as they cook. Allow the jam to cook about 30 minutes or until it is quite thick.
  • Cool and refrigerate in an air-tight jar. This usually lasts me at least 2-3 weeks. If you are making larger quantities, be sure to sterilize your jars and follow proper canning procedures to keep your jam from spoiling.
