Strawberry Peach Jam

You'll definitely capture the flavors of summer with this chunky, luscious toast-topper. Best of all, this jam freezes well for up to a year, and it makes a great housewarming or hostess gift idea. —Gwen Frankhouser, El Cajon, California.

    Really simple and easy recipe. I diced the peaches finely but there were still tiny "chunks" floating in the jam. I would have liked it to be a bit more uniform. I also lowered the sugar to 4C and added 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice. I didn't think my peaches were very sweet, but the end result was a VERY sweet jam. Next time I'll probably lower the sugar to 3C. Overall a decent recipe, but I'll make some tweaks the next time around.

    Hi Judithkk,Because this jam is frozen and not canned, you could try it. I would choose a sugar blend instead of a complete sugar alternative for the best flavor.Sue StetzelTaste of Home Magazine

    Wow this is good! I did reduce the sugar to 3 cups, and it still turned out pretty sweet! I will definitely make this again!

    My recipe did not have water in it. It was very good so hope it turns out like last years,

    Great jam recipe. I would suggest mashing up the strawberries and peaches before mixing them in with everything. Turned out great and anyone who doubted it would taste good was proven wrong.

    This was fabulous! I used frozen peaches because I had them on hand. I also added about a tablespoon or so of lemon juice to add acidity and temper all that sugar sweetness. This is one jam I will be making again and again.
