or at least I wouldn't. They are the white peaches, which I DO love to eat but they are much more delicate in flavor and to me wouldn't make a flavorful jam.
Along with acidity the sugar concentration (and heat) is a very powerful preservative which is why the jams with less sugar will mold quicker. Jams would not be subject to botulism but to mold more likely.
