Peach & Jalapeno Pepper Jam

Prepare your jars and lids accordingly. If you have never made jam or jelly before I suggest you read the Fresh Preserving site. You can find out all the information you need on canning. There are some important information you need to know so that you can safely preserve food for your family.
If you like smaller pieces of fruit in your jam you can mash the peach slices with a potato masher or even the bottom of a heavy glass.

Total time
 
Prepare your jars and lids accordingly before beginning this recipe
Serves: 4 pints
Ingredients
  • 3 ½ lbs peaches
  • 3 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 7 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 pouch liquid pectin
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Instructions
  1. Add the sliced peaches, chopped peppers and 7½ cups of sugar to a large pot.
  2. Turn the stove on a medium low heat.
  3. Stir the fruit and sugar. Stay close to the pot and keep stirring from the bottom of the pot.
  4. As the sugar starts to melt stir it into the fruit to keep the sugar from scorching on the bottom of the pot.
  5. Once the sugar has melted turn the heat up to medium.
  6. Continue stirring periodically.
  7. As the mixture starts to boil throw a tablespoon of butter or margarine in the pot to cut down on foam.
  8. Bring to a roiling boil.
  9. Cook until the peaches become soft, about 20 minutes.
  10. Once the peaches are soft add the pouch of liquid pectin to the pot, stirring.
  11. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil.
  12. Start your timer for 1 minute and if the jam foams up and looks like it might over flow carefully stir it down.
  13. Keep the jam boiling for one full minute.
  14. Once your timer goes off remove the pot from the hot burner.
  15. Skim any foam from the top and fill your jars leaving a ¼ inch head space.
  16. Once you have filled all your jars you will need to process this jam in a hot water bath.
  17. Please follow the direction on the box of liquid pectin for the processing time for your part of the country.
 Use caution when chopping jalapenos or any hot pepper for that matter. Wear gloves while cutting them and hold the food processor away from your face when you remove the lid. I had a very bad experience some years ago

  1. What a great flavour combination! I've always loved sweet and spicy together.
    It's still a little early for peaches in my neck of the woods, but this recipe is going on my must-make list for later this summer once I can get my hands on baskets of gorgeous local peaches!

  2. Oh, gosh, this jam looks incredible. So many uses for such wonderful flavor! Mmmmmmmm….

  3. This looks like an incredible combination. I am looking forward to making this. Thank you!

  7. Love this recipe. My father would adore this!

  8. Thanks so much for this recipe. We have purchased Jalapeno Peach & Pecan Preserves at a favorite family vacation spot for years, and always looked for a recipe to make it ourselves. We'll try your recipe and just add the pecans at the end before jarring them up. Loved the inclusion of your pictures and step-by-step instructions. Thanks again from South Carolina

    really tasty jam, if a little sweet. wasn’t sure when to add the juice (and i used lime… how did run out of lemons??) so i threw it in just before the pectin. beautiful glowing peach color and a warm green jalapeno flavor without a lot of heat. lovely little jam. thanks!

    Awesome! Been looking for exactly this , thanks for posting, lemon diet.

  11. Had a little problem with the measuring. Regular jams call for cup measurements and only use the weight measures for advice for purchase. Most recipes for peach jam call for 4 cups of fruit to 7-1/2 cups of sugar and to make it even more confusing, the liquid pectin recipe calls for 2 3 oz bags of liquid pectin. Also you don’t say whether or not you use the membrane and seeds of the peppers. I’m just going to go ahead with my gut feeling as I do this … I’ve been canning and preserving for more than 50 plus years so I’m not a novice at this. I’ll let you know how it comes out.

    • Hi Bunny

      Yes please let me know how your recipe turns out. I’ve been making this jam for many years and in the 20+ years of jam making I have never used 2 pouches of liquid pectin in any jam or jelly recipe.

  12. I just bought a sm. box of peaches for a cobbler. Last year made my first batch of hot pepper jelly. Thought I would add peaches to my hot pepper jelly this year. So glad I found your website and recipe. I will let ya’ll know how it tastes.
