It only takes about 20 minutes to make this recipe. And, much of that is chopping and preparing the peaches and the peppers to make the jam.
This easy jam recipe makes a wonderful Christmas gift along with a loaf of homemade bread. Or, you can keep it all for yourself if you prefer.

Frequently asked questions
Can I make jam from frozen peaches?
While this recipe starts with fresh peaches, you can certainly use frozen if that’s what you have. Just make sure that the peaches are thawed and drained completely before you start.
Do I need pectin?
Yes, peaches have no pectin of their own to help the jam set. So, you will need to add one package of pectin to the jam while you’re making it.
How hot is this peach pepper jam?
You can taste the heat in this jam recipe. But, you can easily customize how hot it is when you make it.
If you want it less spicy, just remove all of the seeds when you chop the jalapenos. If you like hot food, leave the seeds in.
And, if you want to remove all of the heat from this recipe, you can substitute the same amount of bell peppers for the jalapeno peppers. Just be sure to remove the seeds.
Can I use smaller jars?
This jam is packaged in 8-ounce jelly jars. But, if you want to give it as a gift, you can use the smaller 4-ounce jars instead.
How can I can peach jam?
This recipe is not shelf-stable because it’s not pressure canned. So, if you want to store it for longer, look for the Ball Peach Jalapeno Jam recipe in their pectin box.
Because this is not canned, you will need to keep it in the refrigerator and use it within a month. You can easily cut this recipe in half to make less or double it to make more.
What type of pectin do I use?
Either powdered or liquid pectin should work fine in this recipe. Look for the instructions in the box for their recommendations.

But, it is delicious on crackers with cream cheese as an appetizer or a light lunch. Or, you can serve it with baked brie to impress your guests.
Or, why not try this pepper jam on pork chops or pork loin the next time you make them? And, you have got to try this peach pepper jam on chicken the next time you grill.
