Renee-Lucie BenoitI'm pre-diabetic, but I still like sweet foods once in a while. The following recipe uses very little sugar, and it's super tasty. When you spread it on toast, for example, it tastes like peach pie.

 

Ingredients:

• 4 cups chopped fruit (about 3 lb. fully ripe peaches; I use freestone peaches, but cling peaches will work, too.)
• 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
• 1 box fruit pectin
• 1/2 cup sugar (you can use more if you like it sweeter; up to 2 cups)

Equipment:



• large canning pot with elevated basket rack that fits inside
• magnet to pick up sterilized flat lids
• rubber handled jar picker upper
• pint jars with lids made for canning
• jar funnel that fits the mouth of the pint jars
• potato masher
