Easy Roasted Peach Jam. A super simple, 3 ingredient jam that you make in the oven, reducing and intensifying the flavour of the fruit as it roasts.
No surprise, I overbought peaches again. No problem, whenever there is a surplus of peaches on hand, just like with strawberries, a small batch of roasted jam saves the day.
It so easy to make and takes so little effort but the flavour of the fruit gets intensified many times over. The little splash of real vanilla extract gives a beautiful fragrance and complementary flavour to this simple jam.
This jam is also terrific to use in a simple sweet biscuit shortcake recipe, served with a dollop of whipped cream.
This small batch did not last long and Spouse was none too pleased that I had scooped up the last of it while she was making her morning toast. I think I’ll just buy more fresh peaches and make more for her this weekend.
This jam was inspired by our very popular Roasted Strawberry Jam. You’ll definitely want to try that intensely flavoured version as well.

- 6 cups peeled diced peaches
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Toss the peaches, sugar and vanilla extract together in a glass baking dish.
Roast in the oven at 350 degrees F stirring occasionally until the jam reduces and the juice almost completely boils off.
Watch it closely toward the end of the cooking time because the sugars will be very concentrated and will more easily burn.
Cooking time will vary depending upon the water content of the peaches and the depth of the baking dish. Allow up to 90 minutes for the jam to cook fully.
This is a small batch jam but it can be scaled upward if you wish to make more. Let the consistency and taste of the of the jam be your guide to when larger batches are ready. Larger pans will take a longer time and it is important to scrape the sides of the pan and stir every half hour or so. The jam can be preserved in mason jars using a water bath as instructed by the jar manufacturer.
