When you think of jam, it is probably strawberries or blueberries that come to mind. But homemade Peach Jam is an outstanding sweet treat! This simple jam can be made even easier by using a food mill.
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.
