Why You’ll Love This Jam Recipe
- Fewer seeds in every bite. I love raspberry jam, but all the seeds can be kind of annoying. The peach adds a great flavor, plus spaces out the seeds a bit, so it not only has great flavor, but a nice consistency as well.
- Nothing is better than homemade. Once you give this homemade jam a try I guarantee you will never go back to buying the store bought options again.
- This jam is so versatile. You can switch up the type of fruit based on your taste preference or what is in season at the time. This jam also tastes lovely on the peach muffins!
Raspberry Peach Jam Ingredients
Raspberries: You will need 2 pints of fresh raspberries to make the 3 cups of crushed raspberries needed for this recipe.
Peaches: Using 1 pound of fresh peaches, finely chopped, will give this jam an amazing flavor and texture. Depending on size, 2-3 peaches will make 1 cup of peaches.
Sugar: Adding in 3 cups of sugar will give this jam a nice sweet taste and flavor.
Pectin: Use 1 box of pectin for the key ingredient in this jam recipe. I used Sure Jell Pectin for this recipe, it works great!
Water: Add 1 cup of water to give this jam more moisture and create a great jam consistency.
Jars: You will need a few containers or jars to freeze the jam in. This recipe makes about 6 cups. Depending on the size of the jar or container will determine how many you need.
How to make Raspberry Peach Freezer Jam
Start by washing, destemming, and crushing the raspberries. You can try and strain out some of the seeds if you would like- I never have the patience for this. Then, peel, pit, and finely chop the peaches.
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and the pectin. Then, turn the heat on medium-high.
Next, add in the water and whisk it all to combine well.
Proceed to bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Let it boil for 1 minute while continuing to stir.
Then remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in peaches and raspberries.
Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to the freezing containers, leaving about 1/2″ space at the top for expansion.
Cover containers and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours.
After that, you can freeze for up to a year.
Enjoy one of the jars immediately, freeze the rest for later!
Inversion Method of Canning Jam
Once the jam is in the jars, place the lid and ring on, securely closing it. Then, immediately turn the entire jar upside down. This is called the inversion method of canning, and it is perfect for jam. This inversion seals the lid and will enable you not to have to refrigerate the jam until the seal is broken. I have had jars of jam in my pantry sealed well for 12-18 months using this method. After 24 hours, right the jar, and voila! Beautiful, delicious raspberry peach jam for your family to enjoy!

Do canning jars need to be hot before using?
While your jars do not need to be incredibly hot, they do need to be sterilized and warm. Most people choose to boil their jars in a pot filled with water, with water inside the jars. Boiling for 10 minutes and then turning the heat down is a good way to sterilize and maintain heat on the jars. Another option is to place cleaned jars in the dishwasher without soap and let them heat up that way. As a note, all jars should be washed prior to use using soapy water.
Do you need to boil the lids when canning?
While you should only use lids once for canning, they should be prepped in advance. You should not boil the lids. Unlike jars, they can be kept at room temperature until use. You do not even have to keep them in simmering water (but you can if you want to). Just wash with soapy water, dry, and then set aside until ready to use.
How long does raspberry peach jam last?
Once opened, your homemade jam can last up to 3 months inside your fridge. Water-bathed jars can last about a year, and freezer jams can last a few months. Pick the storage option that suits your lifestyle best, or gift these jars out to your friends so everyone can enjoy some tasty homemade jam.
Can you overcook homemade jam?
Yes, this is a really important thing to note. You can overcook your jam by letting it boil for too long. If this happens, the sugars can either burn and give you a gross jam or become a hard rock-solid lump. Neither of these is tasty or ideal.
