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.

1Peal 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.

2Have 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.
