    Default low sugar peach jam, comments

    as my try of the strawberry low sugar
    was not very good to my taste (too bland
    and the color went off) i wasn't too sure
    how the peach jam would turn out, but i
    made some anyways (so i could give some
    to my diabetic step-Ma).

    i finally opened up a jar of it this
    week and am pleasantly surprised by how
    it turned out. the peaches have a
    stronger flavor and so the result is not
    bland and the color has not gone off at
    all.

    quite happy and will probably do more
    of this again if i get the chance.

    however, like the strawberry low sugar
    it is too easy to eat a whole jar of this
    quickly.

    :-)

    Keep your jam in the dark. Sugar helps with the color, too, as well as
    the flavor and preservation. Have you ever noticed that the no-sugar
    fruit spreads in the supermarket they get brownish in color with age.

    hmm, i keep all of what i make in
    dark closets.

    no, i've not really looked at the low
    sugar items at the store very often. i
    much prefer sugared jams (sweet tooth ).
    and the past few years our jam buying has
    greatly decreased -- other than a jar of
    apricot every once in a great while.
