Peach and Plum Jam

Because it is the season of bumper-to-bumper peaches, and the plums are rolling in as well, it seems the perfect time to put them together for a blended jam that will be fabulous next January….or next weekend. Since moving to the country, I am a diehard jam fan. Can’t get enough of it. This is one to try, especially with chevre or gouda on the side:)

I don't care if they DO run down my arm when I eat them -- it's worth it!


2 ½ cups finely chopped peeled and pitted peaches
1 ½ cups finely chopped pitted plums
4 tablespoons lemon juice
7 ½ cups sugar
6 ounces certo liquid pectin


Step 1 In a large pot combine peaches, plums, lemon juice and sugar.
Step 2 Stirring constantly, cook over med-high heat until sugar is melted.
Step 3 Bring to a rolling boil.
Step 4 Boil, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. If your fruit is less than fully ripe, continue cooking until it breaks down.
Step 5 Add 2 pouches of Certo, stirring constantly.
Step 6 Return to a rolling boil.
Step 7 Boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute.
Step 8 Remove from heat.
Step 9 Skim off any foam with a metal spoon.
Step 10 Fill hot sterile jars leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
Step 11 Wipe off jar rims with damp cloth.
Step 12 Top with 2 piece seal and ring.
Step 13 Hot water bath jars for 10 minutes.

Thanks to Foodista for this lovely recipe. And thanks to Christofferson Fruit Farm for the fruit!

So smooth and sweet-tangy
