Easy Low Sugar Peach Jam

 

 

My first try at making jam and it was a success! I am enjoying this homemade jam on my fresh from the bakery, euro grain toast this morning, along with some pumpkin spice coffee in my new fall mug. It is a perfect fall breakfast, on this cool morning. And the best part for me, is that I can have something sweet, because I controlled the sugar in the recipe.

I found the recipe here and pinned it thinking it sounded too easy to be true. It only had three ingredients and all you had to do was cook them together for 30 minutes and you would have homemade jam. I was looking forward to giving it a try. When I saw peaches at a really low price, I brought some home and now I am thrilled to be able to have jam I made myself, on my morning toast - and it is healthy and delicious :-)

 

There were a few changes I made to the recipe: I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 Splenda and it worked fine, I made a half batch and it made 2 freezer containers; one to use, one to freeze. Finally, about half way through boiling, I began to smash the peaches to the desired consistency ( I like it pretty chunky) and I also removed some of the liquid from the pan. This allowed the jam to thicken nicely.

If you have ever wanted to make homemade jam, give this easy recipe a try. It was fun to make, took no time at all and is the perfect fresh fruit, low sugar addition to any healthy breakfast.

Happy Tuesday!
