Ingredients

Serves: 6-8

Metric Cups
  • 400 grams strawberries (hulled)
  • 4 peaches (ripe or overripe, skinned and chopped)
  • 500 grams jam sugar
  • 14 ounces strawberries (hulled)
  • 4 peaches (ripe or overripe, skinned and chopped)
  • 18 ounces jam sugar

Method

Peach Melba Jam is a community recipe submitted by amandigo and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Wash your hulled strawberries and whizz in blender or food processor to a mush.
  • Add to a large preservng pan or saucepan along with the chopped peaches and jam sugar. Stir over a medium heat constantly until the sugar is all dissolved and no grains show on the back of your spoon. At this stage you could add a knob of butter, apparently it helps stop any scum, but I don't always bother.
  • Bring to boiling point, still stirring and keep at a rolling boil for 4 minutes.
  • Pop into sterilized jars, this should be enough for 2 x 400g jam jars.
  • Enjoy when set- on toast, crumpets or, for a real treat to remind you of your childhood this is amazing with vanilla ice cream, mmmm.....

  • Additional Information

    It's better to chop the peach pieces slightly chunky so that you can see them in the jam.
