This peach and ginger jam was a nice addition to my recipe collection of jellies, chutneys, and jams. I am the queen of breakfast toast, and this one pairs perfectly. It also tastes really good with cinnamon French toast.
Gene White says:
I made peach jam, but without the ginger. Even though we cannot can this recipe, it's worth having a fresh batch. We hosted my in-laws at our house for the weekend, and they loved the jam so much they asked us to make more before leaving.
