Servings 4 people


  • 4 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 kg Peach fresh
  • 1 piece Lemon fresh
  • 1 packet Vanilla finesse
  • 3 Stalk Lemon thyme
  • 500 g Preserving sugar 2: 1


  • Since I was given a bucket of peaches, I experimented a little and modified a recipe to suit my taste. The result is very tasty! The basic recipe can be converted depending on the amount of fruit present.
  • Preparation 2: Stone the peaches and cut them into large pieces. Pluck the thyme leaves from the stem. Squeeze the lemon. Prepare 5 small jam jars
  • Let the sugar caramelize in the jam saucepan, add the peaches, also the thyme and puree everything finely. Add the lemon juice and the vanilla flavor. It is of course finer with a vanilla pod. Stir in the preserving sugar and bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
  • Boil the jam for at least 4 minutes. Make a gel test. If this is successful, pour the jam into jars while it is still hot. If too thin, add citric acid.

I am a Registered Nutritionist-Dietitian. Shortly after taking and passing the licensure examination for Nutritionist-Dietitians, I pursued a Diploma in Culinary Arts, so I am also a certified chef. I decided to supplement my license with a study in the culinary arts because I believe that it will help me harness the best of my knowledge with real-world applications that can help people. These two passions form part and parcel of my professional life, and I am excited to work with any project that involves food, nutrition, fitness, and health.
