Peach Freezer Jam

6-8 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced (3 cups puree)
3/4 c. unsweetened white grape juice
1 (1.75 oz.) pkg. no-sugar-needed fruit pectin 
 (or 3 Tbl. from a jar)
1 c. granulated white sugar
5 (8 oz.) freezer-safe jelly jars

1.Add sliced peaches to a food processor and process until desired consistency is reached.You will need three cups of peach puree.  
2.Heat the white grape or apple juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil.  Slowly whisk in the pectin.  Continue to whisk until dissolved.  Keep at a hard boil for one minute.  Stir in three cups of peach puree and the sugar.  Bring back to a boil and keep at a rolling boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

3.Remove from heat and transfer to a container with a pour spout  (it will be very liquidy at this point, but thickens as it cools)

4.Immediately divide the hot mixture between  jars, leaving 1/2-inch room at the top to allow for expansion during freezing.  Place the tops on the jars and let them sit at room temperature until they are completely cooled (12 - 24 hours). 

I got this recipe from eatcakefordinner  Jam was so fast and easy to make. Great way to use up all the peaches from the tree.
