Keep the peachy-keen tastes of summer in your home year-round with this easy peach freezer jam recipe. Prepared as​ simply as traditional jam, it is then stored in freezer-safe containers so that you can enjoy the "fruits" of your labor anytime.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups peaches (peeled and crushed)

Steps to Make It

  1. Measure the peaches into a large kettle and add the lemon juice. While stirring with a wooden spoon, slowly add the pectin.
