Tonight homemade peach jam! Yesterday, while doing compost outreach at the Cherry Creek Farmer’s Market, I wandered around checking out the different vendors. One of my favorite vendors is Gene’s Pure Colorado. While chatting with Gene about his new marinade (Roasted Red Onion and Pink Pepper), I noticed the stand next to his had lots of fresh Colorado fruits for sale. Since none were marked “organic” I proceeded on and found a stand from Kokopelli Farms out of Palisade, Colorado. If you’ve never had a Palisade peach, you are surely missing out! For $45, I purchased a box of Elberta peaches. One of the ladies recommended these for jam making. So, tonight, after cleaning up the kitchen, sterilizing jars, and keeping the critters out of the kitchen, I made 6 jars of organic honey peach jam.
One thing about jam making: if it fails to set, it’s perfect over ice cream or pancakes!
