  • 5 cups peach puree (10 to 15 large peaches)
  • 6 cups sugar
  • Juice and rind of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice (optional)


Remove pits and imperfect parts from peaches. In a large kettle, simmer peaches with just enough water to keep them from burning. When peaches are softened, put them through a food mill. Add sugar, lemon juice and rind, and spices, and cook slowly until thickened. Test for doneness by putting a spoonful on a plate. The jam should just hold its shape. Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal with paraffin.
