White peach & Elderflower Jam (with Elderflower Cordial) Recipe
Number of servings8
Le Parfait Jam jars
- Wash and sterilise your jam jars in the oven for 10 minutes at 220F. Wash the peaches. Peel them above a large pan so you don’t loose the juices. Remove the stone. Crush the peaches coarsely with a fork. Add the sugar. At this stage you can either let the mix marinate for a few hours or go straight to step 2).
- Cook the mixture on a low to medium heat for about 20 minutes. Put a bit of the mixture on a cold plate in a vertical position: the mix should run slower than water would, however it will still be rather liquid, like a syrup, and the jam should not be completely set, otherwise you will loose the freshness of the peach. The end product will be a perfect spread rather than a hard set jam.
- Skim the foam which has appeared on top of the mixture. Add the elderflower cordial, mix and bring back to the boil. Cook for a further 1 minute. Again, do not worry if your mixture is more liquid than usual.
- Pour the mixture immediately to the Jam jars. Seal and turn the jars upside down. When the jars are cool store them upright.
