Peach Freezer Jam

 I came across this recipe awhile back and if I had a freezer I would give this a try!  Spend just a little time for some pleasure in the future!  Peaches are showing up in the markets  so go buy some and make some jam

Peach Freezer Jam


2 pounds fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped 
1 1/3 cups of sugar 
4 tablespoons Ball Real Fruit Instant Pectin


Place your peeled, pitted and chopped peaches in a blender and puree {or use a potato masher} and set aside.

In a separate bowl, stir the sugar and pectin together. Slowly add fruit and whisk together for 3 minutes until all the ingredients are incorporated.

Pour peach jam mixture in to freezable containers making sure to leave at least 1/2 inch head space to allow for the liquid to expand once in the freezer. Let jam stand 30 minutes before placing containers in the freezer.

This recipe makes 8 cups of peach freezer jam.
