I made this jam both with & without the ginger. both Jams turned out excelent! The directions were easy to follow, which was great since this was my first time making jam. I did a taste test at work with both the Ginger-Peach Jam & the Jam without the Ginger. Out of the 15 people surveyed, 4 liked the Ginger-Peach Jam best, 9 liked the Peach Jam the best, 2 liked both & couldn't decide. This is an excelent recipe. Thank You
Very simple to make and delicious! In lieu of crystallized ginger, I used one jalapeno pepper (seeded), chopped finely. The sweetness and mild heat is a great combination on the tastebuds!
Great recipe! I substituted one cup of raspberries and did not use any ginger. Jam had a great consistency and is really tasty! I will use this again next year. Thanks!
I was very excited to see this recipe...had bought a big basket of peaches, made jam, made a pie and just happened to have 4 1/2 cups left after we had eaten our fill. This jam came out beautifully with a nice set and the flavor is delightful. Followed the recipe exactly and the results were perfect. Many thanks for a fabulous recipe!!!
Very good and different. I like ginger but I might try decreasing the amount next time to give it just a little extra zing without being super gingery.
This jam is SO wonderful! Quick and easy for a jam, and my house smells great! Great on fresh baked bread, or as a topping for vanilla ice cream with a few pecans! YUM!
awesome!! so tasty and good! the kids love it!
This is absolutely fantastic. It would've been helpful to know how many jelly jars this makes, but its really never an exact science anyway. For me, I multiplied the recipe by 5 and ended up with 31 jars of jam. (Good thing it turned out to be such a great jam!) I will say that it is the best jam I have ever tasted, not just made! The only thing I tweaked was that I put in a bit less suger, just as the recipe suggested. Other than that, don't change a thing.
Another note - I put the crystallized ginger in teh food processer and ended up with a gooey lump. It melted once I brought it to a boil, but its probably better to hand chop this.
