I’ve been doing some more preserving this week… peach preserves and cherry jam! Both turned out quite well, I think. The peach preserves are from the Food in Jars blog (sliced and preserved in honey with lemon zest) and the cherry jam is the basic fruit/sugar/pectin/lemon juice formula from the inside of the pectin packet. The cherry jam is lovely on toast and the peaches are perfect mixed into some yogurt… I imagine they’ll both taste even better in a few months when good produce is scarce!

Have you been making any jam or preserves lately? I’m on a bit of a jam making spree right now so if you have a favourite recipe or flavour, I’d love to hear about it!

  1. my favourite kind of jam is apricot, but your cherry jam looks delicious too!

  2. Cherry jam is my favorite and I make a batch every summer!

  3. These both look so delicious! I should definitely try making some peach preserves before they go out of season. I also really liked the look of your pickles. It’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time now. My poor kitchen is just so tiny I have no place to store much, so I haven’t tried canning much before. But all your yummy looking things are inspiring me.

  4. Looks wonderful. I just made blueberry jam this week!

  5. Your peaches look great! I just put up a peck of them this week, pickled peaches and frozen. Now I wish I had some more left!

  6. Both look wonderful. When I was in Germany I fell for a cherry jam with Brandy in it. I’ve been wanting to try recreating it at home but cherries get eaten up too quick around here. I did make peach jam (basic recipe) and it turned out good. I’m thinking it’ll be good as a glaze on chicken or tofu in coming months. 🙂
