Cinnamon Peach Jam Recipe

Canning is a great way to preserve fresh fruits and vegetables so that you can enjoy them year round. Growing up I always loved the canned preserves that were often a staple for our Sunday “faspa” (Faspa is a traditional Sunday afternoon Mennonite meal. It usually consists of buns, cheese, jam and pickles).

Jams, jellies, pickles, beets, canned fruit and salsa were among my favorites.

When I lost my grandma this past May, I knew I wanted to keep memories alive. She was the one who taught me how to can peaches in my tiny little apartment when I was first married. As I have been canning this year, I smile, knowing that I can pass this tradition on to my little girls!
