- Maple Vanilla Peach Jam
To prepare the calcium water, in a small, clear jar with a lid, combine the calcium powder and the 1/2 cup water. Shake well. You will need 4 tsp. calcium water for this recipe; store the extra in the refrigerator for future use.
Wash 4 or 5 half-pint jars, lids and bands. Place the jars in a canner, fill the canner two-thirds full with water and bring to a rolling boil. Boil the jars for 10 minutes to sterilize them. (Add 1 extra minute of sterilizing time for every 1,000 feet above sea level.) Reduce the heat and allow the jars to remain in the hot canner water until ready to use. Place the lids in water in a small saucepan, heat to a low simmer and hold until ready to use.
Peel and remove the pits from the peaches, and then mash the peaches in a large bowl. (See “How to Skin a Peach” tip below.)
Measure 4 cups of the mashed peaches (save any extra for another use) and pour the measured amount into a saucepan. Using a paring knife, slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Add the vanilla seeds and the bean pod to the peaches, along with the lemon juice and the 4 tsp. calcium water. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup and pectin. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
Bring the peach mixture to a full boil over high heat. Slowly add the pectin-maple syrup mixture, stirring constantly. Continue to stir vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes to dissolve the pectin while the jam returns to a boil. Once the jam returns to a full boil, remove the pan from the heat. Using tongs, carefully remove the vanilla bean pod and discard.
To can the jam, remove the jars from the canner and ladle the jam into the hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headspace. Remove any trapped air bubbles, wipe the rims with a damp cloth, put on the lids and screw bands, and tighten to fingertip tight. Lower the filled jars into the canner, ensuring the jars are not touching each other and are covered with at least 1 to 2 inches of water. Place the lid on the canner, return to a rolling boil and process for 10 minutes. (Add 1 extra minute of processing time for every 1,000 feet above sea level.) Turn off the heat and allow the canner to sit untouched for 5 minutes, then remove the jars and allow to cool undisturbed for 12 to 24 hours. Confirm that the jars have sealed, then store properly. Makes 4 to 5 half-pint (8-oz.) jars.
Perfect Peaches: This recipe requires mashed peaches, so be sure that your peaches are fully ripe and soft enough to mash. If they’re not, however, simply place the peeled, pitted and chopped peaches in a saucepan with 1/2 cup water. Simmer for 5 minutes to soften them and then mash. (There is no need to drain the water after cooking; simply mash the peach mixture as is.)
How to Skin a Peach: If you are dealing with a small quantity of fruit, slice off the peach (or nectarine) skins with a paring knife (pitting and quartering the fruit first). However, if you’re doubling the recipe and are working with a lot of fruit, you may want to blanch them to remove the skins instead. Simply drop the peaches or nectarines one at a time into boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds, then remove and immediately immerse in cold water. You should then be able to slip the skins right off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BrentinWA from Do not waste your money This is the 3rd Breville appliance to fail early in it's life, yet intelligently right outside of warranty.Date published: 2017-04-08Rated 2 out of 5 by EdmondsChef from Element issuse On my second toaster. When this product works - there is nothing like it. That said, both toasters have has a one sided element failure so toast is not able to toast on both sides...only one. Disappointing!Date published: 2016-11-12Rated 1 out of 5 by mamapeeps from worked great, until it didn't Loved this toaster for about a year, and then one of the elements failed so it no longer toasts both sides. We thought it was a significant amount of money to spend on a toaster, and expected to have that cost reflect a higher quality and longevity. Will try another brand through WS, and if that is a disappointment too I'll be buying future toasters at a discount retailer.Date published: 2016-07-21Rated 5 out of 5 by trmgolf from Breville Die-Cast 2-Slice Stainless Steel Smart To Love my new Breville "Smart" Toaster. Does all it says it will do and perfectly too ! The Breville name sold me as I did not know they made toasters. I would highly recommend.Date published: 2016-07-17Rated 5 out of 5 by CupcakeLuv from Great toaster I have had this toaster for over 4 years without a single issue. I was looking to see if a larger capacity model was made and I was shocked to see so many negative reviews. I find the toasting to be even and I have used this toaster several times a day since I bought it and it's as good as new. The only downside is that it's difficult to clean, just like every other toaster I've ever owned. The toaster gives a 'bleep' sound when the toast is ready and my cat, wherever he is in the house, meows in response. Always makes me smile!Date published: 2016-06-01Rated 1 out of 5 by BobbyG1 from Poorly built Three years in and this Breville toaster gave out entirely. Along the way the LED lights were burning out. Contacted Breville who offered to repair for $59 since out of 1yr warranty. Not worth it. Plan on purchasing a different brand next.Date published: 2015-08-31Rated 1 out of 5 by July21st from Terrible Expensive Toaster: Not worth the $ I bought this toaster 2 years ago. It only toasted one side. Breville has a 1 year warranty so I sent it back for replacement. The replacement was not any better. One side only toasted. I had to stand and turn the toast to get both sides evenly toasted. I don't have time to keep replacing this toaster so I kept it and dealt with it. Today, 2 years later, it's dead! Won't turn on at all. Called customer service at Breville. My 1 year warranty is over. They will repair it for $59.00 inclusive of S&H. Who wants this? I can find another bad toaster for less than $59.00. Don't buy this Breville toaster. Yes, it looks great, but the quality is terrible. Who makes decent toaster that works, lasts longer than a year and is nice looking on your counter? Who?????????Date published: 2015-08-11Rated 3 out of 5 by CaliforniaBUCK from Plastic exterior doesn't hold up. The toaster looked so nice at first but it didn't take long for the exterior satin finish to start getting marked up since it's made of plastic. It's good for the cool touch aspect but just doesn't hold up to being cleaned or placed against something. It scratches and gets permanent marks easily making the product look cheap after a while. Mechanically it's okay but there was a point where it just didn't work and i thought it was going into the dumpster. It recovered itself somehow. I've had it a few years but use it less than once a month. Not worth a high price.Date published: 2015-04-28
