This jam tastes great. Do try this recipe with half strawberries/half peach for another taste sensation

Ingredients (makes 3 jars)

  • 1kg peaches (stems and seeds removed)
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 cups sugar


  1. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into large microwave cookware bowl. Remove seeds from lemon, and chop up rind and add to the bowl
  2. Chop up peaches (with the skin) and add to lemon. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, stir at 3 minute mark
  3. Add sugar and combine thoroughly. Microwave on high for 20 minutes, stirring at each 5 minute mark.
  4. Pour into sterilised jars (basically wash, rinse and boil them for 10 mins, then dry in 110 degree oven for 15 mins)


Keeps for up to 2 months. Hardly any washing up to do after making this jam

  • Peach jam. Haven’t had that before. Yum.


  • I didn’t know you could make a jam consistency with just sugar sounds sweet


  • Going to have to start saving up my jars so I can make heaps, sounds delicious!


  • Such an easy jam recipe – thanks for sharing.


  • The peach jam would be delicious on crusty sourdough toast! Thanks!


  • Thanks for posting. This looks delicious.


  • Love the idea of using a microwave to speed the process up but could probably never bring myself to do it that way. Something relaxing and enjoyable about making preserves the way I was shown by mum growing up, bit of nostalgia but my preferred way. Thanks for sharing though.


  • Super simple recipe I’d love to try – thanks so much for sharing!


  • when you jar up pop in a vanilla pod for extra flavour! Also using white peaches is lovely too!


  • Would this work with nectarines or apricots?


  • mmmm


  • Thanks for sharing this recipe; I love making jam and will definitely try this recipe as it looks delicious.


  • thanks so much for sharing this recipe


  • How lovely & the suggestion of half strawberries sounds fantastic too.


  • great recipe for only a small amount of dishes! sounds good
