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.
- 4 cups peaches (peeled and crushed)
- 1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh)
- 1 package powdered fruit pectin
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 5 1/2 cups sugar
Measure the peaches into a large kettle and add the lemon juice. While stirring with a wooden spoon, slowly add the pectin.
Let the mixture stand for 20 minutes; stirring every 5 minutes to blend the pectin with fruit. Add the corn syrup and blend well. Add the sugar and blend well.
Cook over low heat to about 100 F, or just until warm to the touch. Do not allow mixture to become hot.
Pour jam into freezer containers to within 1/2-inch of top. Cover the jars immediately. Let stand until jelly consistency.
Store in freezer until ready to use. Store in the refrigerator once jar has been opened.
