Use ripe peaches and not over ripe, ones that are soft and ready to use. The skin in these peaches comes out easier and the jam also tastes the best with such fresh peaches.
You can even use frozen peaches if fresh peaches are not avaialble. Just substitute an equal amount of frozen fruit for fresh fruit in this recipe.
Make sure you thaw frozen peaches to room temperature. Also don’t drain the excess juice that is produced from the thawing process, it can be used in making the jam.
