Peach Vanilla Bean Jam

Yield: about 8 cups


3 lbs. ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped

3½ cups sugar

1-2 vanilla bean(s), halved lengthwise

Juice of 1 lemon


In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, combine all ingredients over medium heat.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is partially caramelized with a dark orange color.  

Using your preferred method, can and preserve jam in sterilized jars.  (See this extremely informative guide on the principles of home canning.)  Alternatively, store the jam in clean jars and keep refrigerated.
