Over time I have tweaked this recipe and have looked forward to making a batch whenever golden ripe peaches are in season - and that would be now! I don't always use commercial pectin for sweet spreads, and this is an example of one such recipe. There is some natural pectin in peaches if not over-ripe, and the addition of orange rind with the pith add sufficient pectin to gel. Expect a smaller yield than jams cooked with commercial pectin, as longer cooking reduces volume, but you'll love the true fruit flavors of sweet spreads cooked the "old-fashioned" way. If you want to make a half batch it will reduce the standing and stirring time, but I don't recommend doubling the recipe. The recipe below makes about 7 half pints, and each half pint will provide 16 delicious tablespoons of marmalade!

  • 1 orange, seeded then chopped with rind and pith intact (lazy me, i ground this in my counter top kitchenaid grinder attachment)
  • 3 pounds ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped or ground
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated or minced
  • 5 to 6 cups sugar (depending on sweetness desired; you can start with 5, after it cooks a few minutes taste it and decide if it needs more sugar)
