Wonderful flavour, not too sweet. I got 4 1/2 pint jars, we like our jam chunky, I did not mash either of the fruits, I sliced the peaches and cut each slice in half and just quartered the strawberries, even left some small ones whole. Also added a couple of teaspoons of lemon juice to keep the fresh colour. I used splenda instead of sugar and cut it back to 1 1/2 cups,and added the full envelope of pectin, it has set beautifully. We have ended up with a wonderful tasting, chunky jam. Thanks for posting, I will make this again.

I just made this the other night and it still hasn't set for some reason. It has thickened some but not to what I consider jam consistency. It smelled amazing and its so pretty in the jars. I got 10 (1/2 pints) out of what I made. REprocessed it the other day and it still isn't as thick as what I think it should be. Although it has a wonderful flavor and I'll probably will make again.

This is only my second time canning, so I think I may have "mashed" too aggressively. I put both fruits in the VitaMix & buzzed them up. They were pretty liquefied with just a few larger pieces in there. I followed the recipe other than that though & then processed them for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath. I don't know if it was the VitaMix or just needing practice, but the mixture is more of a thick syrup, rather than a jam. I'm totally okay with that however, as it's already proved to be delicious on ice cream! :) I wish I had read the reviews first, as I might have used the whole envelope of pectin when I saw it not getting thick in the pan. I'm sure I'll be making this again though. The peach & strawberry are beautiful together! Thanks for sharing, Lisa! :)

Made this twice now and the flavor is wonderful. Mine never set hard more of a thick gel or really thick syrup. Love that it has less sugar than most jams so the fruit really shines through.
