    I halved this recipe which ended up being 3 nice sized peaches. The rosemary was much stronger than I thought it would be and it tasted just beautiful. I did think it was WAY too sweet however. I even reduced the sugar to 2 cups for the 1/ 2 recipe. I will absolutely be making this again, but maybe I'll try 1 1/4 cups. It filled two 8oz jars that I canned in a water bath and about 3/4 of a third jar that I stuck in my fridge for immediate eating.

    Great recipe! I've made it twice now, both times with rave reviews. I boiled it a little longer than the recipe said, about 20 minutes, and it set up with a nice texture. Great on both toast and yogurt. Both times it made more than the recipe said, approximately 5-6 cups.

    Sorry again, it made 9 jars, yikes! Please excuse my brain, I'm pregnant.

    Oops, I meant to say it made 11 jars of the Weck 5.4oz size jars for me.

    This jam is divine. My peaches were perfectly ripe, peeled so easily, and I had a beautiful bunch of fresh rosemary from my CSA. I canned this jam in Weck mini mold jars, 5.4oz size, and it made 9 jars...this will make a gorgeous gift for the holidays! I ran out to Williams Sonoma and they had the Weck jars in stock, actually had quite a selection.

    I am a jam aficionado and this jam knocked my socks off! I made it exactly as advised and it is not too sweet or too anything. I used flavorful peaches, simple domino sugar, rosemary from my old bush and meyer lemons for the juice. So lovely I will gift it in Weck jars (I highly recommend the Weck site to buy a case). And for goodness sake don't destroy this old fashioned soft setting jam with pectin!!! Jam was beautiful BEFORE commercial gobs of jelly were the norm. Let it be the jam it is!

    This is the best jam I've ever had. Making it for the 2nd time, and I think I'll make 2 batches this year because I had to ration it all winter! Mixed with plain greek yogurt, it's to die for!

    This jam is divine. It is begging to top tomorrow's French Toast.

    I've made this recipe for the past three summers. The first time I could not get it to set, so have used pectin ever since with very good results. I make a lot of fruit preserves and this recipe is really one of the best.

    No. All fruit has some level of natural pectin. Manufactured pectin ensures that the gel is of a firm consistency Americans like, but it also requires more sugar be used. There are many recipes out there if you don't want to use commercial pectin.
