It is the time of the year when peaches fill the markets after the mango recedes from its prime place. I love cooked Peaches than ripe peaches. The sweetness gets concentrated and peaches bring a peachyness on my cheeks.Would you believe that? ;)
I decided to try a small batch of peach jam couple of years ago. This draft was lying unpublished for years I thought I must share an easy recipe with you.
The color of the peach jam you see in the pic is original and real. The taste was unmatchable to anything store bought. Try making it, atleast a small batch.
300 gms peaches
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
In a saucepan boil water. Immerse the whole peaches in the water and allow to cook for 3 mins. Remove them after that and immerse in ice cold water. The peaches will leave their skin. Peel off the skin and cube the flesh. Separate the seed and discard.
Now in another large pot add the cubed peaches, sugar and 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Boil till sticky. Test if the jam is set after 20 mins. For this chill a plate in the fridge for 20 mins. Drop a little bit of jam on the plate. Try to move the jam drop. If it forms a skin and moves aside then the jam is done. Let it cool a bit and transfer it to a clean dry jar.
Enjoy it with a buttered toast for a heaven on a slice experience.
