Ingredients

  • 4 ½ cups fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and chopped

  • ¼ cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

  • 1 (1.75 ounce) package powdered fruit pectin

  • 6 cups white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon butter

Directions

  1. Bring peaches, ginger, and pectin to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and butter; cook and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Return to a boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute more. Remove from the heat, and skim off any foam with a spoon.

  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack peach mixture into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.

  3. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then carefully lower the jars into the pot using a holder. Leave 2 inches between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary until the water level is at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a full boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.

  4. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place on a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool.

  5. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.
