Peach Freezer Jam Recipe

I love peaches ! I love Jam! Put two and two together and you end up with peach jam and this year I tried a new freezer jam recipe and it turned out great. Its a nice easy method to use on those hot days when you want to do some preserving but don’t want to be standing over a boiling pot all day. My grandkids loved the jam too, especially in peanut butter sandwiches 🙂 Hope you try making some, Enjoy 🙂 Peach-Freezer-Jam-6

Peach Freezer Jam

 

Yield: Five 8-ounce jars

Prep Time: 30 min + cooling time

Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

3/4 cup unsweetened white grape or apple juice One 1.75-ounce package no-sugar-needed fruit pectin (or 3 tablespoons from a jar) 5 to 6 medium peaches, peeled, diced and coarsely pureed in the food processor (3 cups of puree) 1 cup granulated white sugar 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon Five 8-ounce freezer-safe glass jelly jars & lids (cleaned and dried)

Directions:

1.  Heat the juice in a medium saucepan at medium-high heat until it comes to a boil.  Whisk in the pectin.  Continue to whisk until dissolved.  Keep at a hard boil for 1 minute.  Stir in 3 cups of peach puree, sugar and cinnamon.  Bring back to a boil and keep at a rolling boil for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.

2.  Transfer the mixture to a measuring cup with a spout for pouring (it will be very liquidy).  Divide the hot mixture between the 5 jars, leaving 1/2-inch room at the top of each jar (room for expansion during the freezing process).  Place the tops on the jars and let them sit at room temperature until they are completely cooled off (12 to 24 hours).  Put one jar in your refrigerator to use now, and put the rest in your freezer to use later!

Tips:

*See this post:  How to Peel Peaches (the easy way)

*My sister says she uses the little disposable Glad plastic containers without any trouble, just in case you don’t wish to go out and purchase special jars for this recipe!

*Keep a single, opened jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.  Jars may be kept frozen for up to 1 year.
