Peach Vanilla Jam – Last Days of Summer in a Jar

While we can’t hold back the tide or the change of seasons, we can bottle it for a moment and pull it off the shelf to spread on our scones in the middle of winter.  This column has one of my favorite jam recipes and thanks to a dear friend in Boothbay who has a huge peach tree, we have a plethora of jars on our shelves.  And the recipe for Peach Vanilla Jam is in yesterday’s column in the Portland Press Herald.

Thank you John and Becky! (and Tom for the delivery!)

Stocking up!

    You forgot to add when to add the vanilla extract. Since only noticed then when almost done, I only added 1 T. and at the end of the one minute boil.

      That’s a good choice, Bill, if you don’t have vanilla beans. If you do, their flavor is plenty and the extract isn’t needed.

        I had vanilla beans and then used 1 T. vanilla extract. Canned about 7 jars from 2 batches of neighbor’s peaches. Delicious on breakfast muffins

        Oh good, so glad you like it! Blessed are our neighbors with fruit trees.
