I have not canned in 40 years, but now that I have 6 fruit trees I am doing it in a big way. Right now I am canning freestone peaches and making peach jam. It is part of our frugal living. It's fun!

I just canned 5 pints of fresh peach preserves! They look golden and beautiful.

Tomorrow I will can 7 quarts of peach halves from our tree. They will be so good this winter.

Mmmmm, peaches ... I was thinking of making a peach-blueberry jam, since both are in season now, with low-sugar pectin. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Apples&Oranges congrats on getting some canning done! I won't be canning fruits until this fall I wish I had a peach tree near me to pick from.

I don't have it handy, but I'm going to follow the recipe in the packet that comes inside the Ball low-sugar pectin.

You use 4 cups of fruit, I think a cup (??) of apple or grape juice, lemon juice, the pectin, and as much sugar or artificial sweetener as you want. You can use any mixture of fruit, as long as it comes to four cups prepared (chopped, pitted, peeled etc.)

I'll probably use 3 cups of blueberries to 1 cup of peaches, but we'll see what it comes out to. That's what I like about this recipe -- you're free to do whatever floats your boat at the moment, as long as you use the right amount of fruit, juice and pectin.
