Peach Amaretto Jam

A couple of months ago Ball Canning sent me a sample pack of their Small Batch Pectin, I knew right off what I would be making with it. I figured I would make a small batch in case it was just nasty...I know, how could peaches and Amaretto not be good, right? Of course, this is delish and what I now think of as Summer in a jar! Enjoy it on your toast, homemade biscuits (or store bought), thumbprint cookies, or really just from the spoon!

Peach Amaretto Jam

2 cups peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped--I like mine a little chunky
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 package Small Batch Pectin
1/4 cup Amaretto

Mix the peaches and pectin together in a large pot on medium high heat and bring to a full rolling boil. Once to a boil add your sugar and amaretto and bring back to a rolling boil and boil for 1 minute. Ladle into your jars, wipe the rims, put on the lids and rings and process in a water bath for 10 minutes. Remember to start timing with the water returns to a boil in the water bath.

We don't eat a lot of jam, so this size would be perfect for us. It does look like sunshine in a jar.

This is great, it looks so good. I don't make jam because of the large amount it makes. So I'm lovin' this!

I adore ameretto flavor and fresh peaches will be here soon. This is on my list to make too!

Gosh, I need to make this. I have got actually three peaches on my tree, but I don't think they will be enough. LOL!!

My mom's birthday is soon and I think I might have to figure out how to make this for her! Two of her favorite things!
