3 3/4 cups of peaches peeled, pitted and crushed  I used a potato masher

1/4 cup of lemon juice

1 package of powdered pectin

5 cups of sugar

place crushed fruit in a large pan, stir in lemon juice and powdered pectin.

measure out sugar and leave close by

bring fruit to a full rolling boil stirring constantly

quickly stir in the sugar and bring back to a full rolling boil, boil stirring constantly for 4 mins

leave to stand for 4 or 5 mins stirring occasionally.

pour into sterilised jars filling to 1/8 th of an inch head space

process in a boiling water canner for 10mins.

I made this today as I had peaches to use up. I won't know if it will set yet but going by the bench where the spoon lay and the spoon I don't think there will be any problems.

It came from my amish canning book hence the boiling water canning. But it was so easy to make , no cooking the fruit first and no messing with plates in the fridge or jam thermometers.

if you want to have a go at this but want to use liquid pectin let me know and I will post the other recipe as the quantities are different.
