You can serve peach jam with many desserts – for example, panna cotta, cheesecakes, puddings, as a filling for desserts in glasses or breakfast.
By adding a pectin-based thickener, we reduce the cooking time.
It also makes it possible to reduce the amount of sugar. The indication of the 2:1 ratio on the thickener package means you can take 500 g of sugar for 1 kg of fruit. If it is 3:1, you can easily take 350 g of sugar for 1 kg of fruit. You can cook thick jams with fewer sweeteners, getting a more natural taste.

Method of cooking
Wash the peaches and cover them with boiled water, so that you can peel them easily. Remove the pits.
Cut into cubes and place in a stainless steel pan. Mix one Zhelfix bag with 2 tablespoons of sugar and pour it into the peaches. Stir well and boil. Add the rest of the sugar, and boil again.
Grate nutmeg or cinnamon. Cook for 10-20 minutes. Cooking time depends on the ripeness of the fruit.
Remove the foam and pour it into small jars. Store the jam in a cupboard or refrigerator. It becomes even thicker in the latter.
