Peach Melba Fruit Spread
Recipe By : Kraft General Foods, Inc.
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Jams, Jellies And Preserves
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 pounds ripe peaches or frozen unsweetened peaches -- thawed
1 pint ripe red raspberries
2 cans frozen concentrated sweetened white grape juice (12-oz.ea) -- thawed
1 box fruit pectin for lower-sugar recipes
1/2 teaspoon butter or margarine

Peel, pit and finely chop peaches. Measure 3 cups into 6-or-8-quart saucepot. (Do not use a smaller saucepot or fruit spread will not set.) Crush raspberries thoroughly, one layer at a time.

Measure 1 cup raspberries into peaches in saucepot. Stir in juice concentrate. Stir fruit pectin gradually into fruit in saucepot. Add butter. Bring mixture to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Boil exactly 20 minutes, stirring constantly. (It is important to stir constantly for 20 minutes to get a good set.) Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

Ladle quickly into hot sterile canning jars, filling to within 1/4-inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with pretreated lids and screwbands. Place on a rack in a canner filled with boiling water. Boiling water should cover the jars by 1 to 2 inches. Cover the canner. Begin timing as soon as jars are in the canner and time for 5 minutes. Remove jars. When jars are cool, check seals.

Yields: Four 1-cup jars
