A simple recipe for making peach jam in slices for the winter
My peaches, remove the stalks. We take a sharp knife and make two circular cross-to-cross cuts along the fruit. We take the fruit with both hands and scroll it.
Sprinkle the peaches with sugar. Stir so that all the slices are in sugar.
We leave the peaches for 4 hours so that they let the juice flow. If the peaches are not juicy, then leave them overnight. My peaches gave a lot of juice.
Now we are preparing the jam. Bring it to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes, skimming off the foam. We set aside the jam until it cools completely. During this time, the slices are saturated with syrup and will be elastic.
And now the most interesting thing - we get the peaches from the syrup. Now we will only cook the syrup. Add lemon juice to it and cook for 20-25 minutes over medium heat after boiling. It is easy to check readiness - put a drop of syrup on a plate, if it does not spread, the syrup is ready.
Add the wedges back to the syrup and cook for 5 minutes. We pour immediately into clean and dry cans. Close with sterile lids.
Leave a little jam to taste, because it is very tasty!
