Small Batch Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam is a late summer standby. And this old fashioned peach jam recipe couldn’t be simpler. This quick peach preserve recipe makes a simple, sweet jam with a hint of cinnamon. It’s a small-batch, one jar at a time recipe I love to pull out when the peaches are ripe!
If you’re looking for the perfect Refrigerator Spiced Peach Jam recipe to get the most out of peach season, you’ve come to the right place!
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 or blueberry ice cream!
Frequently Asked Questions
As this is a quick jam you’ll be keeping in the fridge and therefore not shelf stable, you don’t need the sort of set you’ll get from adding pectin. Peaches also contain some of their own pectin, which will help things along.
I’d not recommend it, but that is a beauty of a small batch recipe – it will still be good in the fridge by the time you’ve finished the jar (not that it lasts long in my house!)
Yes, but I like the gentle warmth the cinnamon adds to the jam. If you don’t have any cinnamon sticks, you can always add a pinch of cinnamon at the end to get that flavor.
Of course, but you’ll want to be extra diligent about skimming the foam off the top of your jam as it boils!
I’d recommend it, without a sterilised jar I’d only keep the jam in the fridge for up to a week, rather than for up to four. It always pays to be cautious with food safety!
