Peach Jam almost caramel - cooked too long?

I think I really over cooked my fruit syrup way too long, but it tastes great. It was actually 'stringy/sticky' when I put it into the jar.

I should have know from the beginning that it was doomed. I modified the Peach Jam with Earl Grey Tea recipe. First, I didn't have enough peaches, as 2 of them were so over ripe I couldn't use them. Next I added one apple to make up in weight for the peaches. Then I did have Loose tea, so I opened tea bags. That looked like pepper instead of tea leaves! I had to strain it to try to remove the little bits of tea, and had to cook it longer to soften the apple. I ended up with a wonderful tasting goo.

I was hoping I might be able to change it into peachy caramels, using the "jam" as the corn syrup portion and adding cream and butter...

How would I do this, how much of each. I have one 8 oz jar, which I may never even get out of the jar if it has "set up" like super glue.
