How Ron Makes Peach Jam

Step 1: Plant trees and wait about 3 years for them to mature.

Step 2: Do the happy dance when the trees bloom.

Step 3: Wait months for the peaches to mature, then pick them, immerse them in a boiling water bath, peel and pit them and chop them into tiny chunks of peach.

Step 4: Add juice of 1 lemon, 1 Tablespoon of butter and a package of pectin, then bring to a slow rolling boil over high heat while stirring constantly for an eternity.

Step 5: Check on the boiling jars and rings that you put on before step 4. It should probably be step 3 or 4, but I am too tired from stirring to edit this now.

Step 6: After the peaches, lemon juice and butter come to a slow rolling boil (try saying that quickly 5 times), add a crapload of sugar and bring it back to a slow, rolling boil.

Step 7: Boil for exactly 60 seconds more. Skim off the foam, and put the peach jam into jars. Slap on lids and rings and invert them for 5 minutes.

Step 8: Show off, then share or eat the gold.

Or you can short circut the whole process, drive from Kansas to Georgia as we did the other year and buy yo' peaches at a roadside stand. We never did get to the jam part though.

up in NJ we have cherries and blueberries from the farmers. (we are the garden state afterall)

But peaches from Carolina are a different ballgame. I grew up in SC and i remember being surrounded by peach orchards and how delicious there were.
