    OH I LOVE STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM! In fact, after you’ve had strawberry freezer jam I think you are spoiled to all other strawberry jams and jellies!

    You gotta try this gal! I may show up at a crop with a couple of jars of it and some biscuits one of these days!

  2. LEN says

    I have to try this. Peach preserves is Justin’s favorite, and this is too easy. BTW, I can’t wait to make the country casserole. I’m always looking for a good easy casserole that makes enough to freeze.

  3. Southern Plate says

    Len, I got a GREAT casserole coming up soon. Its a crispy chicken and rice that I just salivate over thinking about it! Let me know if you try these or the country casserole!

    Cee: Oooh wee! Peaches!! I may come raid your freezer!

  4. Mommy's Kitchen says

    Christy this is just to easy of a recipe. My husband loves peach preserves. Guess what i am going to be making to add to my Chistams Baskets??? I am going to can a bunch of these for extra gifts. MIL will flip.

  5. Southern Plate says

    Tina, you just won’t believe how good these are, honestly!
    I am going to give some away for Christmas too. I’m going to get those small 1/2 pint jars and then each recipe will make four of them. I think I’ll make twelve or so for starters. Also, the crock pot apple butter is a huge hit and in smaller jars a recipe of it makes a TON!
    I’m heading today to get my jars now. you can never find them at Christmas when you need them most!

  6. Southern Plate says

    Heather, thank YOU! I appreciate you reading Southern Plate and especially the feedback. It is so valuable! Sometimes when I am posting all of these photographs I can’t help but wonder if folks are rolling their eyes at every single step being detailed! LOL

    Sit down and stay a spell, I got lots more up my sleeve!

  7. Stephanie says

    Wow, I really have to try that. I love recipes that seem like they’re impressive, but in reality take very little effort at all. Canned peaches and sugar – I’m very impressed. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Southern Plate says

    Holly – oh my! thank you for such a wonderful compliment! I do hope you keep coming back!

    Stephanie – These are just wonderful, I think we should keep it our little secret how easy they are though! Can’t wait for you to try them!

  9. Bill G says

    That looks good! I’ll try it for my dad.. being diabetic, I can’t touch them. I need to learn how to can stuff. I still have my mom’s old canner and a huge load of ball jars that have never been used. I’d love to can these for my dad.. he’s a peachaholic. Anyone know of a step by step tutorial on the web for dense men? “Canning for dummies” perhaps?

    Anywhoooo… Your Beef Stew with Country Bob’s sauce has been cooking since 5am. Had to go to Walmart at 4am to get carrots, I was out. I’ll let you know how it comes out.

  10. Las Vegas Linda says

    I wanted to thank you for this wonderful and super easy recipe. I made it with half peaches and half apricots. So good! I’ve used it as an ingredient in Apricot chicken, and we have been enjoying the rest with toast, English muffins, biscuits and even pancakes. This will be a regular item in my recipe repertoire from now on.

  11. Mommy's Kitchen says

    Good Morning Christy I have the peaches on my grocery list today!!!! I want to get started on some early canning for Thanksgiving/Christmas this will be perfect. This is something i can really do aheah of time.

  12. Mommy's Kitchen says

    Christy i know you are gone on Vacation. Today we are getting the rain and aftermath of Hurrican Ike. So its the perfect day to stay home and cook. I have the Peach Preserves cooking as i type they smell wonderful. I cant wait till there done. I just added the sugar so its still a long way aways. I am canning them for holiday gifts.

  13. Su! says

    Oh no…I made this on the weekend. My peaches burnt! ๐Ÿ™
    It wasn’t altogether burnt, it got a little stuck at the bottom of the pan so it’s slightly more caramelized than it probably should have been, so I think I will keep it for cake. I’m thinking it would work well for a ripple cake. I’ll attempt it again in the future though, next time I’ll adjust the sugar. For me the two cups of sugar made it a touch too sweet, and the sweetness overpowered the peaches.

  14. Xasora says

    Oh wow, these look amazing. I can’t wait until I’m out of work in a few weeks, and I can make some! They’ll be *great* to have this winter. I’m drooling over the pictures, I can’t believe that it’ll be as easy as it looks though!

  15. Susan says

    We just made these peach preserves along with the buttermilk buscuits. I am amazed at how tasty the preserves were. I was skeptical at first because it seemed too easy to have something that tasted so good! My daughter does not like peaches but she loved these. Thank you!

  16. Carrie says

    When we visited Nashville, we stopped at the Loveless Cafe on our way to Memphis. I bought a jar of their peach preserves. I was a little disappointed because you couldn’t really taste peaches. It was more just sugar. When I got back home to Honolulu, Hawaii, I decided that I would try to figure out a way to make peach preserves (my hubby is from Georgia and loves them). Anyway, I must say that the ones I made were much better than Loveless. I used frozen peaches, white sugar, and brown sugar. The brown sugar, I believe is the secret.

    I will try these with canned peaches instead.

  17. says

    I don’t know how on earth I managed to miss this recipe. Pear preserves are about the only jam, jelly, etc. that I will eat so I think I may have to get a couple cans and try those instead of peaches.

  18. Denise says

    These sound amazing! If I want to can them so I can store in the pantry, how long should I process them? Also, would you suggest cutting back on the cooking time a bit because of the processing?

    • says

      Sure do! I have a complete tutorial with photos AND a video introduction!
      Just use the search box at top right of page and type on “canning”.
      I’ll try to hop on here tomorrow and paste the link for ya too. I’m on my phone now laying in bed telling myself I’m gonna go to sleep. Lol.

      So glad you like this one and can’t wait to show ya how EASY canning is!
