Peach jam recipe

Some of you wanted the recipe for the jam made with jello. This is a favorite with all my family and friends and so easy.
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.
Makes 4 pints
Enjoy

Carline ~ I have to admit, I was a little skeptical of adding the Jello to peach jam, but it is great. I noticed it really has to sit for a couple of days to blend the flavors...

I made a ham the other day and used the peach jam as a glaze. Turned out great and I received tons of compliments. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I've been following your blog for quite a while and enjoying your wealth of good recipes. When Foodista announced that they are going to publish the best food blogs in a full color book that will be published by Andrews McMeel Publishing Fall 2010, I naturally thought of you. This recipe would be a good submission! You can enter here: http://www.foodista.com/blogbook/submit
