Peach Freezer Jam

  • Prep Time 5 min
  • Total Time 30 min
  • Makes: 8 cups (2 L) jam

Ingredients

  • 12 fresh peaches (approx), peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice 60 mL
  • 1 box Certo pectin crystals
  • 1 cup corn syrup 250 mL
  • 1 cup sugar 250 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    In a food processor or blender, purée peaches to make 4 cups (1 L). In a non-reactive saucepan, stir together peach purée and lemon juice. Stirring continuously, slowly add pectin. Let stand 20 min., stirring every 5 min. to blend. Stir in corn syrup, then stir in sugar until well mixed.

  • Step 2

    Cook peach mixture over low heat until just warm to the touch, about 100ºF (38ºC); do not allow heat to increase further. Pour into tight-sealing food containers to within 1/2 in. (1 cm) of top. Cover and let stand at room temperature until set. Store jam in freezer. To use, thaw in refrigerator. Once thawed, stir jam to return to smooth consistency; keep refrigerated.

Tip

To peel peaches easily, mark a shallow X on the bottom of each one. Submerge peaches in boiling water for 3 to 4 min. Transfer to cold water, drain and slip off peels.
