I have to admit that I have been having fun with the 40lbs of peaches that the hubby brought home from the Farmer’s market. Their arrival coincided with the height of the blackberry harvest so I have been pairing those two fruits together with delicious results. First was a wonderful Peach Blackberry pie and then I made a peach low sugar jam recipe and a peach blackberry low sugar jam recipe. There were still peaches left so more cooking/canning is to come but for today it’s all about jam. This year has been about experimenting with new flavors – I made strawberry cherry jam earlier that is a delicious combination. Last year the new flavor was apricot strawberry jam. I do love playing with recipes and fruits this way.

How Is the Peach Blackberry Low Sugar Jam Recipe?

I did get to lick the spatula after I got the jam in the canner and it was pretty tasty. This was the first time I made jam where the amount made filled the jars with none left over. I usually have a little bit to try on toast or crackers but not this time. It’s a sweet/tart jam with nice chunks of peach all throughout. I really liked it. I know I will look forward to using it this winter.

If you are new to canning I really suggest the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. It’s full of recipes and tips to help get you started. Mine is original to 2006 and is well used. It’s the first book I turn to when I look to can something.
