We chose to can peaches and pears this year because they were ripe and in abundance. We made peach and pear spread and made it entirely without sugar.


Here is the recipe we used:
6 pounds peaches
6 pounds pears
1/2 cup apple juice
2 lemons juiced, and the rind of one lemon, pith removed
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup honey
2 cups liquid pectin
4 packets gelatin
1/2 tsp saltPeal, pit, and finely chop the fruit. Save the juice and add juice and fruit to a non-aluminum stock pot. Ad apple juice, cinnamon, lemon juice, agave, honey and salt and cook until the fruit is soft, 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Ad pectin and gelatin and stir well. Pack into hot, sterile 1/2 pint or pint jars, leaving 1’2 inch at top. Top with hot sterile lids and process in a boiling water bath for 7 minutes after the water has returned to boiling.
