Freezer Peach Jam (Sugar Free)

 

 

It’s PEACH SEASON right now!  I love peaches!   Oh so much! 

My parents came down to visit and brought me a BIG 5 Gallon Bucket FULL of peaches from their peach tree.  Guys, these peaches are amazing!  SO sweet and juice!  Not extremely big but oh so good.

I kept thinking WHAT am I going to do with all these peaches???  I’ve never made peach jam.  Or really any kind of jam but I had to do something. 

Would this even work without all the sugar & pectin?  I have been sugar free here since following the Trim Healthy Mama book. I use the THM Sweet Blend for most everything that requires sugar. It is a mixture of Stevia & Erythritol. Stevia comes from the leaves of a Stevia plant and Erythritol is sugar alcohol that has little to no effect on your blood sugar!

For my jam, I just needed it to be EASY! I am a mama of six, I do not have time to be at the stove for hours and hours. So basically here is my recipes for some of the best peach jam that-tastes-like-peach-cobbler-filling I’ve had! It probably goes against all rules of canning, lol. But it goes in the freezer, in my mason jars. When I am ready to use it, I will take it out, thaw it and eat it up!

Start by slicing the peaches up. Make sure you remove the seed. I cannot tell you how many peaches I actually used but I ended up with about 10 cups of peaches or more. I also did not peel the peached. I just sliced them up and threw them into my big ole cast iron dutch oven (I LOVE THIS THING). Here is what I used (aff link). Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven, 6-Quart

I cooked the peaches down. I did not add water, just the peaches.

After they cooked for about an hour or so, I added the chia seeds, THM Sweet Blend, a little vanilla, and the juice of half a lemon.  I used 2 tbsp. of chia seeds but if your peaches are still too liquidy add more chia seeds!

While the peaches were still hot, I filled up about 4 and a half mason jars.

As soon as I put the lid on the filled jars, I turned the jar up side down. It created a suction and the little circle on the top sucked in. I read about this from this website: http://www.injennieskitchen.com/2013/08/easy-peach-jam/ and it worked perfectly! I am so excited! Now, I allow them to cool completely before putting my jars in the freezer.

WOW, oh wow, I work this works out for you like it did me!! Just remember this is FREEZER PEACH JAM, I don’t think it would last in your pantry. It needs to be frozen. Then I would just allow it to thaw in your fridge! I don’t think it will take you long to use it up! We ate a whole jar in one day!

Now for my THM buddies this jam is an E! So yummy!! ENJOY!!
