This may be a simple recipe for peach jam but the flavor is outstanding! I wanted to keep the integrity of the peach and all it's yumminess so I decided to not cook it and make freezer jam instead. The taste of peaches with vanilla bean is truly Heavenly.

6 Tbsp
liquid fruit pectin
1 pinch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peal and chop your ripe peaches. (I mashed my peaches just a little with a potato masher and then added the rest.) Add your sugar, lemon juice and vanilla bean(slice open your bean and remove the insides). Let this set for 10 minutes.
2
Have your freezer containers ready. They should be sterilized and ready to fill. Add your pectin gradually. Keep stirring while adding pectin to avoid any clumping. Stir till combined about 3 minutes. Ladle jam into your jars and let stand 30 minutes. You can place in refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or the freezer for up to a year.

This tastes wonderful on homemade pancakes or ice cream.
