An easy recipe for anyone not skilled at making preserves.
Mix prepared fruits in large bowl. Add sugar and mix well. Let stand 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and Certo. Continue to stir 3 minutes until most of the sugar is dissolved. Pour into clean plastic containers or glass jars leaving a little head space. Cover with lids tightly and let stand at room temperature until set (may take 24 hours).
Store in freezer or for 3 weeks in refrigerator.

We have several older peach trees. The fruit is slow to ripen. This year the fruit is about plum size and good. How do I make peach preserves? Thanks.

You need to buy a box of Sure Jell and follow the directions. There is also a low sugar kind..should be side by side in the grocery store.
2 parts peeled sliced peaches (more if they are sweet)
1 part sugar
Combine sugar and peaches, cover with plastic and let set 2-3 hours or over night in the frig.
Bring to boil and let simmer until the desired thickness. Stir every so often and skim if needed. I don't can but I freeze them in heavy duty freezer bags with the air squeezed out (one pint per bag). I have a stand alone freezer.
