Raspberry Peach Freezer Jam is the perfect thing when fresh peaches are ripe and sweet. Add some fresh raspberries and you have delicious jam all year long.
Raspberry Peach Freezer Jam is the perfect thing to make this time of year, when fresh peaches are ripe and sweet. I am a big fan of the raspberry and peach combination, the raspberries add a perfect amount of tartness to the sweet peach flavor.. You have to be careful to use much less raspberries than peaches though because their flavor will over power if used in equal amounts.
I love that I can make a big batch of this and it will stay good in the freezer for an entire year until it’s time to make a new batch! I put this jam in a bunch of little disposable ziplock containers (not bags) then we can pull one container out of the freezer at a time as we use it. Once thawed, the jam will last in the fridge for three weeks- so for us, I like to make sure I’m not putting it in a container that is too big, or it will go bad before we use it all. Regular jam will last longer in the fridge, but I love freezer jam because I think it has a much fresher taste.
Be sure to follow the recipe exactly, using the wrong amount of sugar or skipping the lemon juice will result in bad consistency and how long it will stay fresh.
