This was my first time making jam and this jam was absolutely delicious! Unlike some of the other comments, I had no trouble with the jam setting.
Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Wow oh wow, this is a great recipe! I did make some changes. I used Pomona's pectin which helped me cut back the sugar to only 4 cups. I didn't have ginger on hand, but added Penzey's double vanilla right before I canned the jam. I tested the jam before canning and it was amazing! Hubby had it on a PB&J and really liked it. Can't wait to pass it out to friends. Thanks for sharing.

The taste of this recipe is AWESOME! However my jam is not setting up by the next day. I am thinking the amount of pectin was not quite enough. I may have to add more pectin and re-jar the jam which is not a step I do not want to have to go through again. Not sure why this happened except that I broke down the peaches in my food processor which created a lot more liquid. I had a feeling when I was comparing this recipes to others that were similar that there would not be enough pectin to make this set up. Still absolutely delicious! I will add an update after I add more pectin if it sets after that.

I made this today - my very first time making any preserves. Didn't have any ginger, candied or fresh, so I substituted 1 tsp ground ginger. The peaches were Red Havens - Very easy, very beautiful and after taste testing the little bit left in my pot - Delicious! I am so proud of myself and this recipe makes it easy to brag on my jam. Many thanks

I love this... I made it 2 years ago and we went through them fast. I want to make again. Perfect on toast for breakfast or a peanut butter sandwich. I have even used it in stuffed french toast.

Wow. My batch is just a few hours old and hasn't set yet, so I can't speak to that, but the combination of spices in this are fantastic. Kudos! I have a feeling I'll be using this one again and again.

This is wonderful and I made the crstallized ginger recipe (102933) and had that cooking while I cut up my peaches and it was so easy to do, what a cost saver as well. Kudos to you for this one.
