Easy Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam

Refrigerator Peach Jam is a late summer standby. And this recipe couldn’t be simpler. It’s a simple, 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

Yield: 1 to 2 half pint jars
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Refrigerator Peach Jam is a late summer standby. It's a simple, sweet preserve with a hint of cinnamon. A small-batch, one jar at a time recipe I love.

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. To a large saucepan add sliced peaches, sugar, water, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil; add butter and reduce heat to medium.
  2. 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.
  3. Ladle jam into glass refrigerator containers. The jam will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  4. Makes 1-2 half pint jars.

    My hubby LOVES jam. Me I’m not particularly crazy over sweet things but you said THE word Spiced CINNAMON. IM Actually excited to be giving this a try. Maybe I’ll even keep this as one of those little neighbourly gifts come Christmas time.

    Thank you so much for the inspiration
    Blessings

    1. Hi Diana! I have a hubby who loves sweet things and jam too! I think this jam would be a perfect homemade gift during Christmas. It’s so easy to make and on biscuits… it’s amazing. It doesn’t seem to last very long at my house. I hope you love it as do we. While it is sweet, I think the cinnamon balances it deliciously!

    Can you water process in canner to keep in pantry?

    1. Stephanie Wilson

      I have not tried that method with this recipe, but I imagine it would work just fine. In fact, I’m going to try it! Here is a great article that includes process times for jams made without pectin. https://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_07/jelly_without_pectin.html

    Can I put these jars in the freezer?

    1. Stephanie Wilson

      I have frozen the jam in freezer safe containers — it has worked well!

    Think you could double this? Smells delicious! Just cooling some now!

    1. Stephanie Wilson

      Hi Erin — Yes! I have doubled it many times when I wanted to keep one and give one away. Making more tomorrow myself. So fun to have it for September!
