In order to preserve them and prolong their season, I combined them with mangoes and turned them into delicious jam.
I pureed mangoes before cooking and cut peaches in little cubes. You can cube mangoes, too, if you like your jam chunkier.
There is no pectin in this recipe. I didn’t plan to keep this jam for a long time, so I used only a small amount of sugar. If you want to preserve it for longer, double the amount of sugar and process jars in boiling water bath for 15 minutes. You can also put it in plastic bags and keep in your freezer.

Coarsely chop or puree mangoes. Combine mangoes, peaches, and sugar in a pot and stir to combine.
