Ingredients

  • 1 kg peaches cut up in to chunks without stones – I used 3 punnets
  • 1 punnet of raspberries about 150g/200g
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 tablespoons of water
  • 800 g preserving sugar

Instructions

  • Place a plate in the freezer
  • Put the peaches, lemon juice, water and raspberries in to the jam pan or saucepan.
  • Cook gently for 15 minutes until the fruit is soft and mushy.
  • Add the sugar, stir gently until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Put the pan back on the heat and boil for 15 minutes.
  • Take the plate out of the freezer and put a few drops of the jam on.
  • Leave it for a few seconds and gently push the jam to see if it wrinkles. If it doesn’t wrinkle boil for another 5 minutes.
  • Using a funnel pour the jam into sterilised jars. Make sure the jars are warm otherwise the hot fruit may shatter them.
