Recipe for Peach and Pepper Jam

I have received many requests for this recipe. It is from CDKitchen

Peach And Pepper Jam

4 cups peeled peaches...finely chopped
1 whole red pepper...chopped
1/2 cup green pepper...chopped
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2Tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce ( I used a small finely chopped jalapino pepper instead)
1 box fruit pectin crystals
5 cups of sugar

Place peaches in a large saucepan. Combine peppers, lemon rind, cider vinegar, hot pepper sauce ( or chopped  jalapino) and fruit pectin ith the fruit in saucepan. Place saucepan over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a full boil. Stir in sugar bring to a rolling boil stirring constantly. remove from the heat. Skim off foam with a metal spoon. Pour quickly into warm sterilized jars filling to 1/4 inch from the rim. Seal with hot steriized lids.

*I found if you follow this recipe as it is.. the jam may not set firmly which is fine for a sauce to pour over baked  chicken  and roasted pork. If you let boil for 4 minutes it will set as jam. Great  poured over a brick of cream cheese and served as a dip with crackers  Either way a nice holiay gift idea.
