Well, it's peach season and that means there are two things you must make before the peaches leave us. The first thing is Peaches and Cream Pie with Sugar Cookie Crust. I make this once a year. Best day of the year. The other thing you must make is this peachberry freezer jam. My friend Klixi brought this to us at Christmas time with a dozen warm rolls. Second best day of the year. This jam is so delicious and easy to make. Even a toddler can do it!
8 C Peaches peeled, and mashed
1 1/2 c raspberries, mashed
1 c blackberries, mashed
6 C Sugar
2 - 6 oz pkgs of Raspberry Jell-O
8-10 freezer containers
Our berries were really seedy, so I followed Nicole's Jam Champion Advice and drained off half of the seeds. I did not, however, follow her advice to not wash the berries and mine was a bit runny, just as she predicted. Duh. Always listen to a Jam Champion.
Mix peaches, raspberries, and sugar in a large saucepan. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 10-15 minutes once warm. Add Jello-O and bring to a hard boil. Boil for 2-3 minutes. Pour into containers and put into the freezer.
