Peach Jam

(Seftali Receli)

Peach Jam
750 g hard peaches, peeled, seeds discarded, cut in medium sized chunks
750 g (3 1/3 cup) sugar
2 cups water
1/2 lemon rind
Juice of one lemon

Place the peaches, sugar and water in a large cooking pot. Cover the lid and leave overnight. The following morning cook until the sugar dissolves at medium heat. Take the peaches out with a perforated spoon and place on a plate. Lower the heat to under medium heat and cook for about 25-30 minutes until the syrup becomes heavy. Add the peaches, lemon rind and lemon juice, stir. Cook for about 7-8 more minutes.

Take the pot from the heat, remove the lemon rind and discard. Pour Peach Jam into a clean, dry and warm jar while still hot, then close the lid. Store in a dark and cool place.

Merhaba Binnur,
Do you have any advice on "canning safety" regarding this recel recipe? I hear so many people talking about boiling jars, etc., and it makes me worried about making recel.

Thanks!

Merhaba,
I don't recall that my grandmother or my mother boiling the jars:) I have jams cooked like 2 years ago, nothing happened:) Just wash them in the dishwasher then pour the jam in them.
