Category: Canning, Jams & Preserves

 Ingredients List

  • 5 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 Vanilla beans; cut
  • -lengthwise
  • 2 1/2 lb Peaches
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 oz Pectin; (1 pkg)
  • 1 tb Bourbon; optional


Peel, pit and chop peaches.

In a bowl combine sugar and vanilla bean (or 2 beans may be used). 1 tsp.
vanilla extract may be used instead; if so, omit this step. Cover and leave
on counter for 48 hours, stirring occasionally. In a large heavy saucepan
combine peaches, lemon juice, and pectin. Cover over high heat, stirring
constantly, about 5 minutes or until mixture comes to a full rolling boil
(one that cannot be stirred down).

Stir in sugar and vanilla bean or beans if using.

Return to full rolling boil (this takes 5 to 7 minutes.) Boil hard,
uncovered, for one minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and
carefully stir in bourbon and vanilla extract if using. Remove vanilla
bean, if using, and skim off foam. Ladle at once into hot, sterilized
half-pint jars, leaving 1/4" head space. Wipe jar rims,; adjust lids.
Process in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes (start timing when water
returns to boiling). Makes 6 half-pints.
