Peach/Pineapple Jam THM-E

Blend peaches and pineapples together until fairly smooth. Pour into a kettle. Add erythitol and cook for 10 minutes. Soften Gelatin in water. Add jello and softened gelatin to peach mixture. Cook 1 minute longer. Ladle into containers and cool. Freeze. 4 pints.

*I ladle the jam into pint jars; add lids and rings. Seal. I store the jars of jam in the fridge so they stay sealed.

**This recipe can also be made with 8 cups blended peaches and omitting the pineapple.

**If you do not want to use sugar-free Jello you can replace it with 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin, 3 tablespoons xylitol, and 1/4 teaspoon orange flavoring.
