Made with fresh ripe peaches, a dash of cinnamon with a few other simple ingredients for a yummy spread that taste just like peach cobbler pie filling!
- 5 cups ripe fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and finely chopped (about eight to 10 peaches)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 3⁄4 ounces fruit pectin
- 3 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon butter, melted
- 1 dash cinnamon
- In an eight-quart kettle or pot, combine the peaches, a dash of cinnamon and the lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine the pectin and one-fourth cup of the sugar and mix well. Stir into the peach mixture along with the butter. Over medium-high heat, bring the peach mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in the remaining sugar, bring to a boil and cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam that rises to the surface. Spoon the jam immediately into hot, sterilized pint-size canning jars, leaving a one-fourth inch space at the top of each jar. Wipe the jar rims with a clean, damp cloth, fit them with hot lids, and tightly screw on the metal rings. Process in a bath of hot water for five minutes (water should cover the jars by about one inch), cool on a wire rack, then store in a cool, dark place. Makes about 3 pints.
In just a day and a half, I have had all three of my neighbors who tasted this cobbler jam phone and say it is to die for! I really, really love it. Thank you, CooinMama
I made this yesterday and it is very good. It did not set up like it should have but tastes great. It is very sweet and I followed the recipe exactly.
This has a wonderful taste and was very easy to make. If your peaches are very juicy like mine were, make sure to drain well. It caused mine to not jell like it should have. Thanks for posting. I will make again but maybe with only 1 TBSP of lemon juice.
