  • Summary

    This is a great way to make jam because it's simple, lower in sugar, and lets the flavor of ripe fruit shine. Our method makes it a cinch to save the last of your favorite summer produce, like nectarines, plums, or berries. The key ingredient is pectin, which gives this jam the right consistency. The recipe is so easy, you might just need a second freezer!

    Ingredients

    • 5 cups crushed plums, peaches, or nectarines (about 3 pounds fruit), any bruised spots cut away
    • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
    • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup (1.75 ounces) powdered, no-sugar-needed pectin
