Recipe by Lisa Clarice
This jam recipe is very easy to make and delicious! The strawberry and peach are a perfect combination. I use pectin because it cuts down the cooking time and sugar significantly. You can cut this recipe in half for a smaller batch. This recipe makes approx. 12 8oz. jars. Enjoy!

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.
