Ingredients:  
Take 8 cups of peaches, that have been peeled, pitted and rough chopped. Put in large cooking pot. Add 5 cups of sugar, mix and let stand for 5 min. Add 3 tablespoons of (I like) fresh lemon juice. Add 1 box of pectin. Stir well. Let stand again for 5 min. Then turn on the heat to med and cook to a rolling boil. (a boil you can't stir down.) Cook for 2 min. Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1/4 cup of rum. Yes I said rum. You can get your friend to buy it if your uncomfortable, or dress up in disguise. Whatever, just get some, this really makes the Jam GOOOOOD!.. You are cooking the alcohol out, if you leave it on the burner.

Directions:
Directions:
Fill your jars up to 1/8 inch from top. (make sure the jars are sterile and hot!) Seal with the canning lid that is hot also. Tighten the lid tight and turn up side down till the next day! Important so they will seal. You can make this Jam and use another recipe and just add the rum. I break all the rules of jam cooking and double my batch and it always turns out. However, I like my jam a little less thick.

Personal Notes:
Vickie and I made this Jam one year and boy is it good! Be sure to add the rum while still on the heat. (that way all the alcohol cooks out)
