Peach Jam

peach jam and granola

A couple of weekends ago, I made a batch of peach jam.  My local Sprout's had peaches for 49 cents a lb. so it was the perfect time to try it!  The ingredient list...

12 medium peaches
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup agave nectar
1 pkg. (1.59 oz) instant fruit pectin

I used this cool technique for peeling the skin off the peaches.  Once that was done I sliced them and put them in the blender along with the lemon juice and agave for a light blend.  Then I poured the mixture into a bowl and stirred in the pectin.  The verdict is that I love the taste.  It is simply delicious.  The consistency, however, turned out more like a dessert topping than a jam to use on bread.  I am going to use up this batch as a topping to my granola, yogurt breakfast.  Once it's gone I'll re-try the ratios to see if I can more of a jam consistency.
