12 medium sized ripe peaches - peeled and pitted (you know they are ripe if they smell delicious, and the peel is easily removed.) This should make about 3.5 cups crushed fruit.
1 packet freezer jam pectin
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 TBS. lemon juice
Crush peaches in food processor. I like to leave chunks, but crush it more if you like your jam smooth. Once desired consistency is reached, mix in lemon juice with the peaches. In separate bowl mix pectin and sugar until well combined. Add 3.5 cups fresh crushed fruit. Mix for 3 minutes. Ladle into 5-8oz. freezer-proof tupperware containers. Let stand for 30-60 minutes until thickened. Keeps in refrigerator for 3 weeks, and can be frozen for up to 1 year. If you're like me, it won't last even close to that long!
