Ingredients
  

  • 3~4 Medium Peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 2 Medium Mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Vanilla or 1 Vanilla bean, scraped
  • ¼ cup Freshly squeezed Orange Juice
  • 3 teaspoons Pectin

Instructions
 

  • In a large heavy bottom saucepan or a Dutch oven, combine chopped fruit, sugar and orange juice and vanilla bean (if using).
  • Cook on medium heat, stirring frequently until the fruit start to break down and the mixture is bubbling.
  • Cook till the fruit are cooked through and very soft, about 15~20 minutes.
  • At this stage, you can either blend the mixture with a hand mixer for a smoother jam or mash with a potato masher for a chunkier one.
  • If using ground vanilla, add it now and mix well.
  • Stir in pectin and mix very well.*
  • Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until jam thickens. Put a tiny bit on a cold plate and drag your finger through it. If it leaves a clean line - then it is ready. If not, simmer for another 5~10 minutes.
  • Store in a clean glass jar for up to 3 months in the fridge. It can stored in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Notes

  • Orange juice can be substituted with either lemon or lime juice.
  • It is very important to make sure that the pectin is mixed into the jam and cooked thoroughly. Otherwise it will leave a white papery residue in the jam.
  • Make sure to use clean glass jars to store the jam. If you are into canning, then sterilize the jars and can accordingly.
  • This jam can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 months and in the freezer for up to 6 months.
  • Always use a clean, DRY spoon to take the jam out of the jar.
