4 cups finely chopped fresh peaches...peal and pit

2Tabl. fresh lemon juice

5-1/2 cups sugar

1 pkg Sure-Jell

1 teas. butter or margarine...opt. helps prevent foaming

 

Finely chop frsh peaches...place in in large saucepan

Ladle immediately into jars, filling jars to 1/4 inch from top.  Wipe tops and jars. Cover with two-piece lids. Cover tightly.

 

Place jars on elevated rack in canner.  Lower rack into canner. Water bath must be 1 to 2 inches. Water must cover jars.  Add boiling water if needed.  Cover; bring water to gentle boil.  Process jam for 10 minutes.. Place upright on towel to cool completely.  

 

Let jars cool for 24 hours.  Store unopened jars in a dry and dark place for up to a year.

 

 

This is the recipe inside the Sure-Jell package which also has other fruits for jams and jellies.  I have used these recipes for years and have never had a problem.

 

I used 8 peaches and got 5 full  pint jars.

 

If you have any questions, please give me a holler!

@miata1 

 

My pleasure...I hope you give the peach jam a try.  It is sooo good.

Use it as a jam or it can be used as a spread on chicken when baking.  Just another option.

 

I just made strawberry and blueberry. Just as easy.  Interested!?

 

Next up I plan on making apple from apple juice and grape from grape juice.

 

I put some of my jams in different types of decorated jars and give them as presents which gets me some big thank-you's.
