Good flavor! I actually used 2/3 cup of Splenda and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and it still turned out great! I was able to purchase some freestone peaches which are plentiful here in late July and early August. These were so big! I diced them small for this recipe and I love using small jars...fits in my freezer better! Great on toast or topping for ice cream!
