This recipe makes 9 half-pints. But we don't do HALF pints in this house. When we make jelly it has to be in at least a pint sized jar or its gone in one meal. Plus, we usually double the recipe too. lol So when we double it, this recipe makes 9 pints or 18 half-pints (great for smaller families or for gift giving)
- 4 cups peeled, pitted, and chopped peaches
- 1 pkg powdered pectin
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 7 cups sugar
You will notice after making this, that the fruit pieces all seem to float up to the top. Also, after storing at room temperature, upon opening your preserves you may find that they are not as thick as you may want it. But, not to worry, once you open them up, give them a good mix and store them in the nice cold fridge all your worries will disappear... well, at least that one anyway.
