Hint ‘O Ginger Peach Jelly

3-1/2 cups prepared peach juice
1 cup  water
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
7-1/2 cups sugar
1 – 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
2 pouches Certo Fruit Pectin

Simmer / steep ginger in water for 10 – 15 minutes.

Strain ginger solids, adding the ginger water to the peach juice, lemon juice and sugar in an 8 – 10 quart, heavy-bottomed kettle.

Bring to a full, roiling boil, over high heat, stirring constantly.  Add pectin and return to a roiling boil.

Boil one minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and skim any foam (if desired; I don’t bother).

Process according to USDA recommendations for jams and jellies for a shelf-stable product:
