No Pectin Added Nectarine-Mango Jam!
Well, I can honestly say.. Summer is here. I'm a little sun-kissed...temperatures are heating up, boating in full season - AND local farmer's markets are popping up everywhere! Yippee!!! It's one of "those" things I find most difficult - Trying to balance between work-life-health-getting everything you'd LIKE to do checked off your list. 2 weeks ago already I had bought a bunch of delicious, frangrant nectarines and mangos at a Farmers Market that was just full to the brim of fresh local fruit. *heaven*!! Cherries made it home too.. but those are long gone! *yum yum* ANYWAYS... my goal was to make a small batch of No-Pectin Added Jam, using reduced amount of sugar (I wanna taste the fruit..not added sugar), and the mango's & nectarines. Well.. finally.. I did...
The jam bursts with fresh fruit flavour, practically SCREAMS Summer! (or ICECREAM for that matter! mmmmm nectarine-mango jam over icecream... mmmmm) Super easy to make (following same guidelines as my No-Pectin Added Blueberry Jam from last year) no special equiptment required. I had some half pint sized jars, and left over lids, so used those - but even those freezer jam plastic containers - or any airtight container will work! You *can* continue to process these with the regular suggested canning methods, BUT, I figured cause' this is such a small batch, I'd just flip the hot jars/jam over once filled - and will keep in the fridge. I'm positive it won't last long! (If you use a freezable container, this is good for up to a year!)
