Peach-Thyme-Black Pepper Jam

3 1/2 pounds peaches, peeled and pureed

2 T. lemon juice

1/4 C. packed thyme – leave on stems for easy removal

1 tsp. cracked black pepper

1 package of no sugar needed pectin

Sugar to taste – I used 3 cups


Thyme and black pepper pair well with stone fruit like peaches. Add the thyme, pepper, pureed peaches and lemon juice to a pot, and bring to a full boil. Add the pectin, bring to a boil and cook for one minute. Then add sugar to taste – if the pectin doesn’t need sugar to set, you can add as much or as little as you like. Before adding the sugar, my jam tasted savory – three C. brought it up to a nice balanced flavor. Boil for one more minute, then ladle into sterile jars. Process in boiling water for 10 minutes.
