Sweet Nectarine Ginger Jam

  • Author: Emily Smith
  • Total Time: 45


Beautiful and delicious homemade sweet jam made from summer’s delectable nectarines.


  • 2 1/4 pounds nectarines, sliced and pitted
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh ginger zest.


  1. Stir together fruit and sugar in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved and mashing fruit with a potato masher.
  3. Add lemon juice; continue to boil, stirring frequently.
  4. Continue boiling for 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove the foam from top.
  6. Stir in fresh ginger zest.
  7. Test the jam to see if it’s thick enough: use a wooden spoon to pick some up – it should be stick a bit to the spoon and look like jam consistency.
  8. Turn off the heat, allow to cool for 10 minutes. If the jam is too chunky for your taste, you can run a beater on low through it for 2 minutes.
  9. Afterwards, using a ladle, scoop jam into sterilized containers, leaving 3/4 inch of headroom. Let cool completely before refrigerating.
  10. Cover, label, and refrigerate up to 1 month, or freeze up to 1 year.
  11. Enjoy!
