Very good! This will be great on toast all winter. Didn't set very solidly, and I didn't have the whole spices so I just used a very little bit of the ground version of the spices. Can't wait to break open a jar!

Just made this jam and it's quite good however there are a few changes I would suggest;<br/><br/>Please note the default receipe makes a lot of jam, you may want to scale it back by 1/3 or so.<br/>Also since it does not use pectin it is not a thick stand on it's own jam, it's more like real jam. Great for morning toast, not PBJ's.<br/><br/>I would suggest using more peaches and less blueberry as the blueberry seems to overpower the peach flavor a bit too much. I may even go so far to just use 1/2 the amount of the blueberries and just make up for the reducing of the blueberries by adding more peach.<br/><br/>I also added real vanilla bean to mine, one bean, split scrapped and added. Yummy!

Really yummy! It was a great way to make use up the leftover canning peaches and some of our smaller blueberries. I did use a liquid pectin to set it firm. It's delicious and will be nice to give away in the gift baskets. Thanks for sharing.
