Jams & Jellies
Makes 3 half pint jars
ripe peaches, peeled, seeds removed, and quartered
cherry juice cocktail - i used juicy juice 100% juice
1/2 cup sugar per cup of puree - for me it measured 2 cups of sugar
1Add peach quarters and juice to dutch oven. Cook on medium-high until peaches are soft about 10 minutes. Allow to cool enough to pour into blender.
2Blend until smooth. Take note of the measure - for me it was 8 cups.
3Add peach mixture and 1/2 cup sugar for each cup of puree - for me it was 2 cups sugar total.
4Cook on low until thick and bubbly stirring often. Cook time for me was about 3 hours.
5In a large stock pot boil clean jars, lids for 10 minutes. Remove and fill to 1/4" to the top.
6Place back in stock pot. Boil in water bath for 10 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to sit for another 10 minutes.
7Place in a location and do not touch for 24 hours. Check lids have set properly - if not refrigerate immediately. Store others in pantry. Enjoy!
