  • large pot
  • jars


  • 5 lb peaches
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar for sweeter jam then 2 cups
  • 1/2 orange


  • Wash and dry 5 lb of peaches. Then remove the pits, and slice the peaches. Transfer peach slices to a heavy-bottomed large pot. Drizzle well with 1 1/3 cups of sugar. Now let peaches sit at room temperature with the sugar overnight or until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Next day (or once the sugar dissolved), place the pot over the stove uncovered over medium to low heat. Meanwhile cut ½ orange in small cubes and add them to the pot. Bring the mixture to a light boil, stirring occasionally. Simmer the peaches for about 10 minutes and then turn off the heat. Let the mixture stand uncovered until it reaches room temperature.
  • Then repeat the boiling process. Bring the peach mixture to a light boil a total of 3 times. If you desire the jam to have an even thicker consistency, then boil it 1-2 times more.
  • Pour in the peach jams using a clean spoon or a glass measuring cup (for less mess) in sterilized jars. Then seal the jam with a lid and transfer to a cool dark place for the best preservation. Store unopened jam for up to 1 year. After opening refrigerates jam for up to 3 weeks.
