Russian peach jam

Last Saturday I bought a case of peaches with every intention of making peach butter. The recipe for peach butter requires that you bake the cooked peaches for about an hour and a half. It was so hot that the thought of turning on the oven made no sense at all. So I found another recipe, very simple, for peach jam which I had every intention of making. But then I started a new quilt and I'm still working on my jacket plus I have a huge stack of books to read. Mr.Cowboy volunteered to make the jam and not only did he make a batch but then the very next day he made another batch, which means that we now have 18 jars of sunshine in the cellar to enjoy in the depths of winter.
