3cupspeeled finely diced fresh ripe peaches
1 1/4cupsgranulated sugar
1 3/4ounce(1 box) SURE-JELL fruit pectin
Place diced peaches, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
Sprinkle in the fruit pectin, stirring until dissolved and continuing to boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and stir for 1 more minutes.
Mash the mixture with a potato masher, or pulse in a food processor, until desired consistency is reached.
Ladle the jam into 8 ounce glass canning jars, leaving a 1/2-inch clearance from the top.
Allow to cool for 1 hour. Seal with the lid and place in the refrigerator overnight to solidify.
All freezer jams have a looser consistency than regular jams do. The texture for this recipe falls somewhere in between a typical jam and a fruit sauce - loose enough to drizzle on ice cream, but thick enough to spread.
This jam can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks or in the freezer for 1 year! If frozen, allow to thaw in the refrigerator before using.
