Peach – Pepper Jam


A delicious sweet and spicy jam, perfect with crackers and cream cheese, as a condiment or as a glaze for chicken, shrimp or pork.

It never fails, I come home on a Friday evening only to realize that we have to take something to a get-together and I have nothing prepared!  No worries, I grab a jar of peach-pepper jam, a box of Ritz Crackers and a block of cream cheese and I’m ready!  And the best part is the crowd LOVES it!  I never have left overs!

  • 4 cups peaches peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 medium jalapenos seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 5 cups white sugar


Place peaches in a large stainless steel pot.  Combine peppers, lemon juice,  apple cider vinegar with fruit in pan.  Stir well to combine.


Place on the stove-top over high heat and stir until the mixture comes to a full boil.  Stir in sugar and bring to a full rolling boil.


Boil hard for several minutes, stirring constantly until all of the foam is either removed with a spoon or quits rising to the top.  Remove from the heat.


Pour into clean, warm, sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch head space.  Seal while hot with hot sterile lids.  Water bath for 10

    You don’t need to add pectin? This looks delicious!

      You can use Pectin if you like. I don’t use Pectin in many if any recipes. I simply cook it to my desired thickness.
