MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 16, 2014

I just made this jam, and I use exactly what the recipe called for. It was very easy to prepare, and was already jelling before I got all the liquid in my containers. I tasted the jam, when it had cooled, and it was delicious. If you are looking for a very easy freezer jam recipe for peaches, I recommend this recipe.

I am going to make this recipe this season but I am wanting to can it. I live at 2,000 ft so I always add to my hot water baths but now I am concerned about making this and it not remaining good and am wondering if I should use my pressure cooker. Can anyone give me some good advice?
