Fresh Raspberry-Peach Fruit Jam

The other day I posted a delicious recipe for Strawberry-Orange Jam in this post, which happens to be incredible! Here is the same recipe, but with raspberries and peaches. Both call for the addition of mouthwatering lemon citrus and fresh ginger.  Nothing to be intimidated about here as it’s so easy to make and out-of-this-world good!

Easy Raspberry-Peach Fruit Jam

Ingredients:
2 cups chopped fresh or frozen raspberries (or small whole berries)
1 cup chopped peeled peaches (about 2)
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 large lemon
2 tbsp plus 2 tsp powdered pectin (I used Ball Real Fruit Classic Pectin)
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger (optional)
1. Stir together fruit and sugar in saucepan. Let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, zest lemon to equal 1 tsp. Cut lemon in half; squeeze juice from lemon into a bowl to equal 2 tsp. Remove seeds, peel and section the squeezed lemon, then chop.
2. Stir pectin and, if desired, ginger into fruit mixture and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring often. Boil, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in lemon zest, chopped segments and lemon juice. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes; remove from heat. Cool 10 minutes.
3. Pour jam into 2 (8-oz) canning jars, and cool completely (about 30 minutes). Cover with lids, and refrigerate up to 1 month.
