Peach – Plum Jam (low sugar)

Easy peesy lemon squeezy, no fuss jam is here. You can use either fresh or frozen fruit, both will work perfectly. I used this jam in my Jam Crumb Cake, you should try it, it is soooo gooood. Let’s make JAMūüėĀ

Ingredients:

350 g peaches chopped (skins removed)

200 g dark plums chopped (I kept the skins, you may remove if you like)

1 tbsp lemon juice (If your plums are sour then do not add the lemon)

3-4 tbsp castor sugar (you can add more if you like)

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients into a heavy bottomed sauce pan and let it come to a boil, keep stirring till it becomes thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
  2. Once it thickens, take it off the heat and let it sit for 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender blend the mixture if you like a smooth jam, you may also blend it in a blender.
  3. Store in a jar, refrigerate to keep it longer. It should be shelf stable if you can it by using the canning method. Or else it should last for a month in the fridge whilst stored in a glass air tight container. My jar was empty within two weeks.
