Peach Jelly

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by PJ Davis

I had so many peaches and couldn't find a recipe for peach "jelly", so adapted a recipe from Ball's Blue Book for plum jelly. Sets up overnight, so don't worry about its consistency right away. It WILL gel and boy oh boy is it wonderful!! English muffins never had it so good!!

Hi, I just made this jelly today. It turned out perfect. I got 9 1/2 pt. jars. I had some "blood red" peach juice from my peaches last summer. The pectin makers didn't have any peach jelly recipes. Thank you for sharing. Mitzie
