FAQ’s About Making Jam:
How long can jam be kept in the refrigerator or freezer?
In the freezer, this jam will last up to 1 year! Once you take the peach jam out of the freezer, be sure to store it in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for 4-6 weeks!
Can you use glass jars for freezer jam?
Yes! I love to use glass mason jars for storing freezer jam! However, you can use any container that is freezer friendly.
Can you use frozen peaches to make freezer jam?
Yes! You can use frozen peaches to make this easy freezer jam recipe! Be sure that the peaches aren’t covered in sugar and substitute an equal amount of frozen fruit for fresh fruit in the recipe. Be sure to thaw the fruit to room temperature and don’t drain the excess juice that is produced from the thawing process (use it in the jam).
What if my jam turns out runny?
All peaches are different, so if you have overly juicy peaches and your jam doesn’t set up as much as you’d like, just add an additional packet of pectin (cooked the same as in step #3, and then added to the batch to thicken it further).
