Cooking peach jam:
Step 1: prepare peaches.In order for the jam to turn out delicious and with delicate pieces of peaches melting in the mouth, it is necessary to select only ripe fruits with a red-yellow peel. So, first of all, we wash the peaches well under running warm water in a colander and immediately transfer them to a deep bowl. Now we need to remove the skin, because during the cooking process it becomes like rubber, which subsequently spoils the taste of the jam. To do this, pour water into a large pot and put on a large fire. You need a little water - up to half the pan, so that you can still put peaches there. When the water boils, put a small amount of fruits in it with our hands alternately and boil exactly 1-2 minutes. Immediately after that we take out the ingredient using a slotted spoon or a tablespoon and transfer them to a bowl of cold water. In order for the peaches to cool faster, you can add the most ordinary ice. This will speed up the process! And now the most painstaking process begins. Using a knife, cut a peach skin. After - we cut the fruit into two parts and take out a bone with our hands or with the same knife. We don’t throw out the bones - they are still useful to us. Attention: if you notice that some peaches are spoiled, do not throw away fruit. After all, the flesh of such a fruit is very tender and may fall a bit when dropped. Therefore, with the help of a knife, we carefully cut out the beaten zone. After - on a cutting board with a knife, cut peaches into small pieces along the half of the ingredient. Shredded component is transferred to a bowl.
Step 2: preparing cans for preservation.
Step 3: cook peach jam.
Step 4: serve peach jam.Peach jam turns out very tasty and tender! The main thing is that it does not taste sugaryly sweet and is great for any baking. Due to its consistency, it does not spread and can easily be spread on bread! And in the winter it will be nice to feel the aroma of summer and drink a cup of tea with a spoon of this wonderful jam! Good appetite!
- - If you like jam more in large pieces, then you can cook peach in small slices after the first preparation of the ingredient. The cooking procedure does not change from this. You also add 3 kilograms of sugar to it and, with constant stirring, cook it for 5-6 hours. - For cooking peach butter, use aluminum cookware rather. Thanks to this, peach slices will not stick to the base of the container and your jam will not burn.
- - Do not forget to constantly stir the jam with a wooden spatula and, if necessary, make a small fire. - As for peach seeds, they can be added to peach jam. To do this, they must first be dried, then chopped with a hammer and peeled off the core with a knife. 10-20 minutes before the end of the cooking jam, add the seeds to the peach mass and just mix everything well again with a spatula. - When choosing equipment for refueling, pay attention to the fact that the covers are not rusty and there are completely new gum lines that are even at the edges.
