This is one of the easiest and best recipes that it my honor to have in my book. The family thinks that I stood over a stove for an entire day. Little do they know.

Couldn't have been simpler! A few months ago, I was given a TON of peaches. I peeled, sliced, and froze 7 quarts of them. When I ran across this recipe, I thawed and drained them. I used 12 Cups of thawed peaches, 4 Cups of sugar, and 3 1/2 tsp. of lemon juice. I followed the directions as written. I canned them all in 1 cup jam jars, and have been enjoying it on toast and even figured out a sweet and sour sauce we love with it! Thanks! I'm sure I'll be making more next summer.

Great and easy way to use up peaches. Had trouble getting it up to temperature. Added 2 more tablespoons of lemon juice. Thermometer still did not seem to be rising high enough, but the sheeting test indicated it was ready. Did not process sealed jars in a water bath, as my (very old) BH&G canning book said it is not necessary. Just turn jars upside down for several seconds before setting them to cool. I will use this recipe whenever I want to make peach jam. Thanks!
