The following recipe will make approximately 7 cups of freezer jam frozen in 1 cup portions. The jam will keep for up to 1 year in the freezer or for up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
Raspberry and Peach Freezer Jam Recipe
2 cups crushed red raspberries
1 1/2 cups finely chopped fresh peaches
7 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup water
Wash berries and mash with a potato masher. Wash peaches, remove skins & pits, finely chop into small pieces. Place mashed berries & chopped peaches into a large mixing bowl and stir in 7 cups of granulated sugar until well combined. Cover bowl and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
In a large saucepan bring 3/4 cup of water to a rolling boil and boil for exactly one minute, stirring constantly to get the fruit pectin to dissolve. Pour the hot fruit pectin & water mixture into the fruit bowl, stirring gently to combine. You will need to stir this entire mixture for 2 minutes to ensure the granulated sugar dissolves.
Spoon jam into freezer safe containers (they recommend 1 cup containers) but I use 1/2 cup containers since it is just hubby and I at home. Let jam sit on your counter overnight to allow it to set up. Place lids on containers and freeze.
