Peach Jam Biscuits

Peaches can be red, pink, yellow, white, or a combination of those colors. On one side of the fruit is a distinctive vertical indentation. Peaches and nectarines look very similar, but they can be told apart by their skin texture: peaches are fuzzy and dull, while nectarines are smooth and shiny. In the peach fruit, the stone is covered with a fleshy substance that is juicy, melting, and of fine flavor when matured and mellowed.

Peach jam made in microwave…very simple and very fast…



Ingredients for Biscuits :

Wheat flour-1 cup
Butter-2 spoons
Salt-a pinch
Baking powder-a pinch
Milk-sufficient to make dough


Ingredients for Peach Jam:


Peach pulp-1 cup
Sugar-3/4 cup
Ghee-1tablespoon



Method:


1. Mix the wheat flour, salt, baking powder, butter and milk and make tight dough.

2. Roll into a thick circle and cut into desired shapes using moulds or circular shaped lid.

3. Make patterns on them using fork. Bake for three minutes in pre heated oven toaster. Biscuits are ready now…
4. Boil five cups of water in a vessel for five minutes on medium flame and turn off the stove.

5. Place the peach in boiling water and leave it for two minutes. Then take out the peach and place in cold water.

6. Peel off the peach, take out the pulp and put it into a microwave safe bowl.

7. Add the sugar with the pulp and cook for three minutes on high speed.

8. Take out the bowl, add the ghee and stir the contents well and place it in the oven again for three minutes.

9. Stir again and keep it in the oven for one more minute to get a jam consistency.

10. Spread the jam on the baked biscuits and cover them with the remaining biscuits on top. Peach jam biscuits are ready…really delicious…the jam goes well with bread too.
