This traditional peach jam is delicious!


  • 1 ½ cups peaches - peeled, pitted, chopped, crushed
  • Ball® RealFruit™ Classic Pectin
  • 420 ml granulated sugar
  • 15 ml lemon juice
  • 1 ml butter, optional
  • 250 ml Ball® glass preserving jars, lids and bands


  1. Prepare waterbath preserving pot. Wash jars, lids and bands in hot soapy water. Heat jars in simmering water until ready to use. Do not boil. Set lids and bands aside.
  2. Wash, peel and pit peaches. Coarsely chop peaches and then crush with a potato masher. Measure required quantity of crushed peaches and remaining ingredients for your recipe; set aside.
  3. Combine prepared peaches and lemon juice in a large saucepan. Gradually stir in Ball® RealFruit™ Pectin. Add butter, if using. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, over high heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Add entire measure of sugar, stirring to dissolve. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary.
  5. Ladle hot jam into hot jars, one at a time, leaving 1/4 inch (6 mm) headspace. Wipe rims. Centre lids on jars. Apply bands and adjust to fingertip tight.
  6. Process filled jars in boiling water for 10 minutes. Remove pot lid. Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars, cool and store up to 1 year.
