Peach Freezer Jam

This is so quick and easy. Get out five 8-oz. jars with lids and make sure they are clean and dry. Next, assemble these ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 pounds fresh, ripe peaches
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons instant pectin

Peel, pit and coarsely chop the peaches.

Place the peaches a bowl of a food processor and pulse until you reach a chunky puree. (Don’t have a food processor? Use a potato masher to mash them up in a large bowl.) You should end up with about 3 1/2 cups of puree.

Pour the puree into in a large bowl, add the lemon juice, and stir well. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.

Gradually add the pectin to prevent lumps and stir very, very well. Try using a whisk here.

Spoon the jam into clean jars with tight-fitting lids making sure you leave about 1/2-inch of space at the top of the jar to allow for expansion in the freezer. Allow the jars to sit at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes to set. Store the jam in the refrigerator or the freezer. The jam will last in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 weeks and in the freezer for up to a year.
