1
Make a small cross with a paring knife at the bottom of each peach. Place in a pan of boiling water for 30–45 seconds, depending on the ripeness of the peach, then plunge into a bowl of iced water
2
Peel the skins from the peaches, quarter and remove the stones
3
At this stage, you should have around 300g of skinless peach flesh. Place into a small heavy-based pan with the sugar and lemon juice and leave to simmer on a low heat. Stir to prevent any sticking
4
Cook down for 20 minutes and skim off any scum that settles on the surface
5
To test if the jam is the correct consistency, remove the plate form the freezer and spoon a little jam onto the plate. Place in the fridge to set for a couple of minutes. If the jam forms a skin and sets then it is ready to jar. If not, return to the heat and continue cooking, repeating the test every 5 minutes
6
Leave to sit for 15 minutes to cool slightly – this allows the fruit to settle evenly instead of floating to the top when you transfer to the jars
7
Spoon the jam into the sterilised jar, seal, and label with the date. The jam will keep in a cool dark place for 1 year, once opened keep in the fridge
