My Favourite - The Best Peach Freezer Jam Recipe!
Many people ask me what my Favourite Peach Freezer Jam Recipe is.
Well, THIS is my favourite recipe!
I lack the time to cook and can jam, so freezer jam is a fast and wonderful alternative!
This recipe is quick, easy and uses less sugar than most peach jams.
This Peach Freezer Jam is tastier than cooked jams (because no flavour is lost in the cooking/canning process and less sugar means fresher taste!)
I also find that deep peach colour of this Peach Freezer Jam is original and not compromised by any cooking or further processing of the fruit.
4 cups crushed peaches
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 pkg. (45 gr) No Cook Freezer Jam gelling powder - (I use "Garden Fare" Club House Brand)
Wash and rinse containers.
Place prepared fruit in a large mixing bowl.
Gently stir in sugar and allow to stand for 15 minutes.
Gradually sprinkle gelling powder, a little at a time, onto the peach fruit mixture while stirring for 3 minutes.
Allow mixture to stand for 5 minutes.
Gently stir again for 1 minute.
Pour peach jam into jars, leaving 1 inch head space. Seal tightly.
Jam is ready to eat. No standing time is required.
Store in refrigerator and use within 6 weeks or store in freezer for up to one year.
Yield is approx. 4 1/2 cups.
Note - the above recipe was taken from the gelling powder package of "Garden Fare" Club House Brand.
I find that freezer jam has a much smoother consistency than most canned jams, making it very versatile.
You can also use peach jam to make the best peach tarts.
To make jam-filled muffins, place half the batter in the muffin pan, add 1 - 2 tsps. of peach jam, and then add the remaining batter ... presto ... a specialty peach muffin!
