Peach Freezer Jam Recipe
Peach Jam…yum!! I love the different jams and jellies you can make at home. This is a fairly easy recipe. You could even get the kids involved to help out.
What You Need:
3 lbs peaches
2 T ginger
5 C sugar
2 pkgs (1 3/4 oz) powdered pectin
1 C cold water
4 (1 pint) freezer containers with lids
How to Make It:
Remove the pits from the peaches and peel.
Chop peaches up very fine to make about 4 C.
Place peaches in a large mixing bowl.
Add ginger and stir together.
Slowly add the sugar and mix until well combined.
Place the cold water in a small saucepan and place over medium heat.
Add the pectin.
Bring to a boil being sure to stir continuously.
When water comes to a rapid boil cook 1 minute.
Remove from heat and pour into fruit.
Stir until all is combined.
Continue to stir 4 minutes.
Pour mixture into the 1 pint freezer containers and cover with lids.
Leave standing at room temperature for 1 full day (24 hours).
Freeze for up to 6 months.
When ready to use remove from freezer and allow coming to room temperature about 1 to 2 hours.
Freezer jam will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
