  1. Sterilize canning jars, and prepare two-piece canning lids according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Place orange and peaches in a large pot, and cook gently about 15 to 20 minutes. Add sugar and nutmeg. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly until thick, about 15 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir occasionally to prevent sticking. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add nuts.
  3. Pour hot conserve into hot jars, leaving a ¼-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims and adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath. 

Tips & Notes

You will notice this recipe doesn’t use pectin – only fruit sugar. Pectin changes the taste of the jam, and most people who make their own seem to prefer it without.
