Easy Peach Jam

Makes: 2 cups

Prep time: 20 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

When you have peaches that are over-ripe, why not turn them into a jam that can be enjoyed for weeks? 

What You'll Need

1 1/4 lb. very ripe peaches, quartered (about 3 medium peaches)

1 cup granulated sugar

3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1. Place peaches, sugar, and lemon juice in a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive pot; mash with a potato masher.

2. Bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring often.

3. Cook 10 minutes, stirring often, until thickened and jammy. To test if the jam is done, spoon a small amount on a small plate, and freeze 1 minute. After 1 minute, tilt the plate. If the jam runs off quickly and easily, it's not quite done. 

4. Cool to room temperature, then spoon into jars, cover, and refrigerate up to 1 month.
