Peach Vanilla Jam Recipe

These low sugar peach jam recipes combine ripe, juicy peaches with other fresh ingredients to make truly unique homemade jams. Includes freeze jam option.

Turn your ripe, juicy peaches into an awesome low sugar jam with just a hint of vanilla.



Sterilize seven 8-ounce jars, keep hot. Prep lids and rings. Fill water bath canner and bring to boil.

In a small bowl, mix together sugar and pectin powder. Don’t skip this step, or your pectin will clump. Set aside.

In a large, non-reactive pot, combine peaches, lemon juice, vanilla bean and the calcium water. Bring to a full boil.

Add sugar-pectin mixture, stir vigorously 1-2 minutes while cooking to dissolve pectin. Return to boil and remove from heat.

Ladle jam into sterilized jars leaving 1/4″ headspace. Wipe rims clean and screw on the lids. Process for 10 minutes in water bath canner (add 1 minute for every 1,000 feet above sea level). Jam will last about three weeks once opened. Makes around 6-7 cups.


Sugar may be reduced to 2 cups if preferred.
