Place crushed peaches** in a large bowl, stir, sugar (or Splenda) and bottle lemon juice until well blended.
LET STAND for 10 minutes.
Gradually stir contents of Mrs. Wages® No Cook Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin into the peach mixture. Stir for three minutes.
Ladle jam into clean, freeze-safe containers, leaving ½-inch headspace. Secure lids and let stand 30 minutes to thicken.

**For thicker jam, bring crushed peaches to a boil before mixing with other ingredients.
Freezer jam set is softer than cooked jam which makes it perfect for spreading.
