Fresh peaches are yummy! Peach Jam is definitely a treat! Peach Freezer Jam - so good! This jam always takes a bit more time to prepare. The peach skins are not included in the jam. After rinsing the ripe fruit under cold running water, the skins need to be removed. The easiest method to do this is to place each piece of fruit in simmering hot water for about 35 seconds. Remove from water and drain.
When cool enough to handle, the skins will peel off easily (after being pierced). Then, remove the pit. Mash the fruit and then measure needed amount and place in a large bowl and continue following the directions found inside the package of Certo (liquid fruit pectin).
Homemade Freezer Jam is just the best! Whenever I make a batch I always read the notes that I've shared with all of you (click here for notes) and I also reread & follow the Directions (exactly) found inside a box of Certo (liquid fruit pectin). As I've shared before, in my younger years I made the cook over a hot stove in the heat of summer Jam. However, one year after reading the directions for Freezer Jam in the package of Certo, I made a batch of Strawberry Freezer Jam. It was so yummy, that I made the Blueberry Freezer Jam when the local blueberries were available. Now, it's my kind of jam!
Peach Freezer Jam may take longer to prepare than the Strawberry or the Blueberry varieties, but it also tastes great - especially during the harsh cold icy winter months!
