Peach Freezer Jam
Yield: 7 half pints.

6 cups peeled, pitted and sliced peaches
2 cups granulated sugar or to taste
1/4 cup lemon juice or to taste
1/3 cup powdered pectin or equivalent liquid pectin (sold with canning supplies)

In large Dutch oven, combine peaches, sugar, lemon juice and pectin. Mix well, making sure pectin is dissolved completely. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then cook until jam reaches 220 degrees on candy thermometer or falls in sheets from spoon, stirring frequently. Skim off foam that rises to the surface.

Let jam cool slightly, then spoon into freezer containers, cover with lids and freeze.
