Peach-Strawberry-Meyer Lemon Jam

Ingredient List:

10 large peaches peeled and chopped roughly

(I peeled mine by placing the peached in boiling water for about a minute and then placing them in an ice water bath. The skins peel off easily with this method)

3 pint of strawberries sliced

1/4 cup of any fruit juice, I had cranberry on hand.  If you don’t have fruit juice just use water

2 C sugar ( I used coconut sugar)

1 tbsp honey

3 Meyer lemons (juice of 3 and zest of 1)

6 tsp pectin

(more if needed)

1 tbsp dry basil (optional)

Method:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil

Add peached and cook for 1 minutes

Remove peached from boiling water and place in ice bath

Peel peaches once they are cool and chop roughly (remove all pits)

Slice strawberries and add peaches, strawberries,honey, basil, fruit juice, lemon juice + zest to a large pot

Heat over medium, after 5 minutes use an emersion blender and combine all fruit.  You could also use a blender for this step, be careful! It will be hot!

In a medium bowl combine sugar + pectin

Add sugar mixture to fruit and bring to a boil

Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened

Ladle into jars and refrigerate

You could can this also but I always give mine away so I have never made it that far!
