Homemade Jam Recipe | Peach Jam

Peach Jam

4 cups peaches {chopped, peeled and pitted}
2 Tbs. lemon juice {I’m not a lemon snob, so I use bottled lemon juice}
1 box Fruit Pectin {I used Sure-Jell}
1/2 tsp. butter {to prevent foaming}
5-1/2 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl

  1. Fill a boiling-water canner about 2/3 rds full with water and bring it to a boil.
  2. Place 4 cups prepared fruit into an 8 quart sauce pot. Add lemon juice and pectin {add butter to reduce foaming, if desired}. Bring to peach mixture to a full rolling boil {which is a boil that doesn’t stop bubbling when the mixture is stirred} on high heat, stirring constantly.
  3. When the peach mixture has begun to boil, stir in the sugar. Return mixture to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute {no cheating}, stirring constantly.
