    I made this jam today. It was still a bit tart so I will add a small bit of additional stevia. Over all tastes great! Only problem I had is my jam is a little dark. I'm not sure what happened.

    I made this using sugar instead of splenda. It turned out absolutely delicious without excessive amounts of sugar masking the pure peach flavor or making it icky sweet. I used local peaches which were extra juicy this year and the jam set up fine. Definitely my go to peach jam recipe now.

    This is yummy! I had to do something with a half bushel of peaches I had purchased. I'll have peach jam in the winter and plenty to put in gift baskets for the holiday.
