It’s just not summer without peach jam. Ours is slightly chunky but still spreadable, and very sweet with bright peach flavor. For the best possible jam, use fresh, ripe peaches in peak season—nothing can compare to a peach in its prime. We recommend using a candy thermometer, as it makes the process much easier, but we’ve also provided steps for those who prefer to go without. Spread it on toast, scoop it on top of vanilla ice cream, or use it to give your pork tenderloin or chops a juicy, summery twist.
