Mom's Peach Jam

Posted Jul 31 2009 11:53am
This recipe is so tasty!

Everyone says "My Mom makes the best cookies" or "My Mom makes the best spaghetti". I am here to prove everyone wrong. My Mom is the best at everything when it comes to baking, and I will fight you to the end on this one. I wrote in a previous recipe that my Mom used to help us bake things that we would enter into the county fairs and rodeos. One year, my Mom entered her Peach Cobbler and she won First Prize. We are not here to today to talk about Peach Cobbler but to talk about something else. Jam! She makes all varieties of jam, but by far her Peach has beat the rest. So please, give this one a try. You will NOT be dissappointed.
