So you've got to try this! This jam is pretty much fresh peach pie in a jar. Yum! I love it! It's super simple and has less sugar than many jams. When you use clear jel you're able to really cut back on the sugar. You can buy clear jel from alpinefoodstorage.com.
10 cups mashed peaches
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 cup light karo syrup
2 teaspoons almond extract
4 cups sugar
2/3 cup clear jel
Prepare fresh peaches by peeling and removing the seed. Mash peaches with a potato masher. Don't blend, because you want small chunks. Add lemon juice, karo syrup and almond extract. In a separate bowl add the sugar and clear jel. Stir together until combined, and sugar is dissolved.
Pour into pint or half-pint jars and keep in freezer.
