Peach Jam

Author: Canadian Living

Freestone peaches are the best for making jam since the fruit doesn't cling to the stone, making them easy to pit. If you can get peaches with a red blush, they add a beautiful rich colour to the jam.

In large Dutch oven and using potato masher, mash peaches to make 4 cups (1 L). Add lemon juice.

Mix pectin with 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sugar; stir into peaches. Bring to full rolling boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining sugar and return to full rolling boil; boil hard, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat; skim off foam.
