Strawberry Peach Jam Recipe

You'll definitely capture the flavors of summer with this chunky, luscious toast-topper from Gwen Frankhouser of El Cajon, California. "Best of all," notes Gwen, "this jam freezes well for up to a year, and it makes a great housewarming or hostess gift idea."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + standing YIELD:40 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped peeled peaches
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 5 cups sugar

Directions

  • 1. Rinse five 1-cup freezer-safe containers and lids with boiling water. Dry thoroughly.
  • 2. In a large saucepan, mix strawberries, peaches and pectin; bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; skim off any foam.
  • 3. Immediately fill containers to within 1/2-in. of tops. Wipe off edges of containers; immediately cover with lids. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours.
  • 4. Jam is now ready to use. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 12 months. Thaw frozen jam in refrigerator before serving. Yield: about 5 cups.

"Hi Judithkk,

Because this jam is frozen and not canned, you could try it. I would choose a sugar blend instead of a complete sugar alternative for the best flavor.

"Great jam recipe. I would suggest mashing up the strawberries and peaches before mixing them in with everything. Turned out great and anyone who doubted it would taste good was proven wrong."

"This was fabulous! I used frozen peaches because I had them on hand. I also added about a tablespoon or so of lemon juice to add acidity and temper all that sugar sweetness. This is one jam I will be making again and again."
