What You Need to Make Peach Freezer Jam
– Sugar – Ripe peaches – Sure-Jell fruit pectin – Lemon juice
Peel and slice up your peaches. Here are my peaches, all cut up.
Now we’re going to take those diced peaches and moosh them up really good with a potato masher.
Measure out your sugar into a large bowl. And then measure out three cups of fruit. Add lemon juice.
Stir up this peach mixture well and let it sit for about 10 minutes so the sugar can dissolve.
Meanwhile, place water in a saucepan and pour in the Sure-Jell. Bring it to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for one minute.
Pour into fruit and stir that up well. Set up your station of clean sterilized jars, a cup to pour the jam in with, lids, and a wet paper towel or dishcloth.
Pour your fruit into the canning jars, leaving one inch of space between the fruit and the top. Wipe around the top and side threads of each jar with a wet paper towel.
Place a lid on each jar and then seal it with a ring (the part that screws on). Let sit at room temperature for 24 hours. After that time has passed you can put some in the fridge to begin using immediately and store the rest in the freezer.
