"Nilla" Peach Jam

4 Cups of Fresh Very Ripe Peaches, peeled, pitted & chopped fine
Juice from one fresh Lemon no more than 2 TBS.
5 & 1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Box Sure Jell ( it ALWAYS sets & it is the only one I use) !
Place prepared peaches & lemon juice in deep heavy saucepan. Mash with a potato masher to break up peaches.  Cook on high while stirring till you get a full rolling boil. Stir in Sure Jell. Continue cooking & stirring until full rolling boil comes back. Dump in all the sugar at once & cook & stir . As soon as you get a full rolling boil time it for one minute . At one minute of stirring & cooking add vanilla & stir well. Remove from heat & chill or process in prepared jars as per directions on Sure Jell package. Full directions are on my blueberry jam recipe & you would follow those exact directions to can this jam as well! Next time I think I will add cinnamon to this recipe because I love peaches with vanilla & cinnamon but I wanted to try just the vanilla flavor this time.
