Early Morning Peach Jam

As in, I made it in the early morning....

I have a half-bushel of peaches to deal with and 36 hours to do it in, including time for sleeping and working.  So since I was getting up early anyway, I got up an hour earlier and made a batch of jam.  These peaches are huge, and it took less than 3 of them to get 4 cups of diced peaches.  I now have 7 jars of peach jam, 2 of which are for the fair.  I'll make another batch before I start putting up peaches in syrup, because peach jam goes quickly.

[For the fair:  4 cups peaches, 2 T. lemon juice, pectin, 5.5 cups sugar, maraschino cherries and almonds.]
