Peach Melba Freezer Jam

Freezer jam is fast and easy to make. You don't cook anything, so the fruit tastes fresh and wonderful. It requires much less sugar, which is a big plus. It's very delicious and very pretty.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups peeled, crushed, very ripe peaches
  • 1 cup crushed raspberries (I use frozen, unsweetened ones)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 packet pectin for low/no sugar recipes

Directions:

  1. Drop the peaches in boiling water for about 30 seconds, then remove and put in cold water. The skin should rub off easily.

  2. Remove the pit, and chop the fruit very fine. Put in a medium bowl and crush. You can use your hands, or a potato masher. You want small chunks of fruit, so don't puree.

  3. Thaw the berries and crush them. Mix the peaches, berries, and lemon juice.

  4. In another bowl, mix the sugar and the pectin thoroughly. Stir this into the fruit until completely dissolved, about 3 minutes.

  5. Ladle into 8 ounce, plastic freezer jars, put on the lids, and let it sit for about an hour. Then freeze. It will keep in the freezer for at least a year, but it's so good, I bet it will be gone well before a year.
