Found on Pinterest

3-1/4 cups peaches, ripe peeled and mashed (roughly 2 pounds) 

1 cup banana, ripe and mashed (about 3 medium sized) 

1/2 cup maraschino cherry, drained and diced 

2 tablespoons lemon juice 

6 cups sugar 

1 (1-3/4 ounce) package dry pectin 

Makes 8 - 1/2 pints 


Mix peaches, bananas, cherries, and lemon juice into a large saucepan. Mix pectin into fruit in pan.

Stir and cook over high heat until mixture comes to a full rolling boil (one that can't be stirred down). Add and stir in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil once again. Stir constantly and boil. Boil rapidly for one minute. Remove from heat. Skim off foam. Stir and skim for about 5 minutes allowing mixture to cool slightly and prevent floating fruit. Ladle into sterilized canning jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Make sure jar rims are clean and cover with two piece metal lids and rings. Hot water bath for 5 minutes.
