Spiked Peach Jam with Ginger
This is a great jam for peaches that are not picture-perfect but nice and ripe. Combined with ginger and amaretto liqueur, the peach jam tastes divine.
Place peaches in a glass or plastic container with a lid and immediately mix with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Stir in sugar and ginger.
Cover and marinate in a cool place 8 hours to overnight.
Inspect 5 half-pint jars for cracks and rings for rust discarding any defective ones.
Immerse in simmering water until jam is ready.
Wash new unused lids and rings in warm soapy water.
Transfer peaches and all accumulated liquid to a large pot.
Stir in pectin and slowly bring mixture to a full rolling boil that does not stop bubbling when stirred.
Cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in amaretto liqueur adding more to taste.
