Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam is a simply sweet preserve with a hint of cinnamon. A small batch, one jar at a time recipe I love to pull out when the peaches are ripe. A perfect summer treat I make often.




Where I live, peaches mark summer’s passage. When August arrives, I begin combing our farmers’ market for fresh peaches from the orchards east of the Cascade mountains. Depending on the year, I can count on this beautiful and wonderfully delicious fruit arriving mid month. On good years, it will continue through the first of September.

Peach Cobblers are a must. Peach ice cream as well. And my husband wouldn’t let the season pass without asking for his all time favorite dessert, peach pie. But this Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam is just as coveted.

Mornings become sweetly delicious with a dollop of this jam on my favorite wheat toast. Or… an evening on the patio with a spoonful on top of vanilla ice cream!

Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam

Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam is a simply sweet preserve with a hint of cinnamon. A small batch, one jar at a time recipe I love to pull out when the peaches are ripe. A perfect summer treat I make often.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 large peaches, sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 4-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon butter

Instructions

To a large saucepan add sliced peaches, sugar, water, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil; add butter and reduce heat to medium.

Continue to simmer the peaches on medium to medium-high heat, removing foam from the surface as needed until the peaches are soft, most of the liquid has evaporated and the jam has thickened. About 20-30 minutes. During this process, I like to use a potato masher to further break down the peaches. The back of a spoon works well too.

Ladle jam into glass refrigerator containers. The jam will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Makes 1-2 half pint jars.
