White Peach Jam.
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:58:42 pm »
White Peaches have a lovely delicate perfumed flavour and cooking them into jam without any extra liquid really intensifies this quality.  The joy of using the TMX is that once the formula is established, a constant result is guaranteed.
I leave the skins on as this adds to the lovely pink colour.
Ingredients.
750g sliced White Peaches. Skins included
1/2 a large Granny Smith Apple, cored and 1/4 .
Juice of 1 small lemon
1 dessertspoons vanilla
525 g white sugar
3 teaspoons Jamsetta

Directions
Place a small dish in freezer

Place apple into TMX bowl and grate, 2 seconds/ speed 5
CUP OUT
Add, sugar, peaches vanilla and lemon juice.  Cook 40 minutes/ 100 degrees/ speed 1
Add Jamsetta, cook15 minutes/ 110 degrees/ speed 1
Test a teaspoon of jan on dish from freezer.  Place back in freezer for 5 minutes.  After 5 minutes, if pushed with finger it should wrinkle.  If nor cook another 5 minutes until it sets.

This makes just under 1 litre. 3 to 4 small/ medium jars.

Notes.  I have made a batch replacing 200 g of the peaches with frozen Raspberries.
             Also added Cardamon and ground Pistachios to another batch. Very exotic.
Donít think this would work with yellow peaches as they have a different texture.
Probably work well with Nectarines.

Is there any water in there, Chookie?

Marina, NO water.  That is what makes it so intense. Iíll bring you a jar when we  come to Melb in early March.  The peaches were from our tree.  No spray.

I'll look forward to that Chookie, it's ages since I've seen you and Ral ... if you can, give me prior warning and I'll see if I can escape from the shop for a while for a coffee .. or a tea .. or a water!!

One of our guys has come in with heaps of nectarines off his tree this week ... I might just give this recipe a go at the weekend (if I get a chance) to use up the nectarines.  If I manage to pull it off we can have a jam comparing session!

This sounds so very nice. My little Italian shop often has trays of peaches available. I will have to keep checking to see if they are white ones.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

This has proved more popular than I expected. I have given a few jars to people and they have all loved it.  I thought it might be too delicate in flavour.
