I like the versatility of the recipe. I have made this recipe twice now. The first time, I followed the instructions exactly but I found the jam to be too spiced and not peachy enough. The second time, I used a mix of thawed peaches, pineapple, and mango. I subbed out about 1/4 cup white sugar for brown sugar and added about 1/8 tsp cardamom powder instead of the cloves and nutmeg. The jam worked great! It has a lovely consistency and is very fruity. Next time I'll up the cardamom and maybe add some orange rind.
This recipe does work nicely in making Jam, but I recommend running the peaches through the blender briefly, as the bread machine does not chop them up. Also, I thought the amount of spice was overwhelming...I can't taste the peach. I'd probably use about 1/4th what is called for.
This turned out very well. Next time I might run the peaches through the blender first, I cut them small, but it was still too chucky for my taste. I will also decrease the cloves to 1/2 tsp; they aren't my favorite, and the clove flavor was pretty strong.
I wish I could reach out and hug your neck!!!!I love peach anything, especially using frozen peaches as they are always available. I just happened on to the recipe while looking for peach bread. Haven't made it yet but you can bet your bottom dollar I will of made this before the week is out. If you have any suggestion on things I should or shouldn't do please feel free to let me know, also if you have posted any other quick jams I would appreciate knowing. Will let you know the end result, don't have a jam setting on my bread machine so will attempt on the stove top. Thanks again....Lydia
