Flashback and Foodie Friday ~A Fall Flower and Spiced Jam
I'm flashing back only a few weeks, short and sweet. I know fall is on the way when I take my morning walk and the dew has left teeny tiny droplets on every surface. It was one of those days when I captured these diamond studded roses.
With fall in the air, canning seemed like the thing to do! I made some tasty Spicy Peach & Nectarine Jam
Spiced Peach and Nectarine Jam
Adapted from Ball Blue Book
2 quarts crushed, peeled peaches
1/2 cup water
6 cups sugar
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Combine peaches and water; cook gently 10 minutes. Add sugar and spices; slowly bring to boiling, stirring occasionally until think, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Pour, boiling hot, into sterilized jars. Adjust caps. Yield about 4 pints.
Join me if you have a flashback of any kind..food, flowers, family, fun :-)
