Ginger Peach Jam

Yield: 8-9 Half Pint Jars

4 Cups Diced Fresh Peaches

1/4 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice

3 Tablespoons Rum

1 Teaspoon Butter

1/2 Teaspoon Fleur De Sel

1/2 Teaspoon Ground White Peppercorns

1/2 Cup Ginger Sugar

1 Package Powdered Fruit Pectin

5 Cups Organic Cane Sugar

2 Teaspoons Citric Acid

We’ve spiked our classic peach jam with ginger sugar and rum. We think once you’ve tried this one, you’ll be like us and turn your back on ‘plain old’ peach jam forever!


Place diced peaches in a Dutch oven placed over high heat. Add lemon juice, rum, butter, salt, pepper, and pectin. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a full rolling boil. Remove from heat and skim off foam if any has formed. (Using butter in the recipe should prevent the foam and make your job easier).


Add sugars and return mixture to a rolling boil. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir citric acid into the mixture, and process as desired.

Fleur de Sel
Delicately harvested by
hand before its crystals
reach the bottom of the
salt pan, our Fleur de Sel is a must-have for every discerning Home Chef. Used primarily as a finishing salt, it is meant for sprinkling on top of your most special recipes just before serving.

White Peppercorns
The pepper of choice in
most European kitchens,
white peppercorns are
released from their outer black shell by soaking. The process results in a more mellow taste than that of black pepper. And the creamy color works perfectly in recipes that are lighter in color.

Ginger Sugar
Rich, sweet, and warm,
our Ginger Sugar can be
used creatively for both sweet and savory dishes. Sprinkle some on salmon before grilling, use to add a subtle sweetness to sauces and vinaigrettes, or use as a finishing touch on pastries and desserts.
