  • Place slices in water containing 1/2 tsp of ascorbic acid crystals or six 500-milligram vitamin C tablets in 1 gallon of water to prevent browning. For fresh fruit, place 6 cups at a time in 1 gallon boiling water.
  • Boil each batch 1 minute after the water returns to a boil. Drain but keep heated fruit in a covered bowl or pot.
  • Slice Strawberries. Do not blanch. 
  • Combine water, sugar, Clear Jel®, and, if desired, cinnamon and/or almond extract in a large kettle.
  • Whisk and cook over medium high heat until mixture thickens and begins to bubble. Add lemon juice and boil sauce 1 minute more, stirring constantly. 
  • Fold in drained peach slices and continue to heat mixture for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add strawberries folding them in till incorporated.
  • Fill hot jars without delay, leaving 1 1/2 inch headspace. (SB Recommended based on seepage issues) Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace if needed.
  • Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel. Adjust lids and process immediately. Process in a water bath canner for 30 minutes.
