This Peach Maple Cardamom Jam is one of those rare creations in life where the whole is much, much more incredible than the sum of the parts - even if those parts are pretty darned amazing to start with.
Food of the Gods.
Plus! I didn't use white sugar - only our homemade maple syrup. Bonus points!
This is a jam that is fabulous on biscuits, but would be phenomenal as a filling in cakes or as an ice cream topping when you want something that's a bit more exotic than plain peach.
Peach Maple Cardamom Jam
- 3 cups chopped peaches
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/3 cup Dutch Jell All Natural Lite pectin [or 3 Tablespoons Ball Low Sugar Pectin]
- 1 1/2 cups maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
Note: I picked up the Dutch Jell All Natural Lite pectin at my local Amish store [Freedom Country Store in Freedom, Indiana]. I like that it comes in bulk. It gels very well - almost too well. I'm going to use it with other fruit and let you know how I feel about it later in the season.
