5 cups mashed peaches (peeled anyway you like, blanch or just peal)
1 cup crushed pineapple
8 maraschino cherries,chopped
5 cups sugar
1 large package jello, any flavor you like. Our favorites are raspberry and orange
Combine the first 4 ingredients and bring to a boil, cook for 25 minutes. (use a heavy pan and stir often)
Take off heat and add jello, stir to combine.
Fill jars, wipe around the lid with clean wet cloth. Put lids and rings that have been sitting in hot water on jars and screw tight. Invert jars on towel and let stand for 5 minutes, then set upright. The jam will need to set up for 24 hours or more before it really sets up.
