Rated 5 out of 5 by from Which freshTECH canner do I use? I have the ELECTRIC WATER BATH CANNER & MULTI-COOKER, and the freshTECH AUTOMATIC JAM & JELLY MAKER. This recipe calls for the "BALL FRESHTECH AUTOMATIC HOME CANNING SYSTEM". Is that a canner that I don't have? Can is use one of the canners I listed above that I do own?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same recipe, made with the Ball Fresh-TECH I've used my fresh tech for over a year now. I really don't want my friends to know how easy it is. We were just at the farmers market in Santa Barbara. I bought passion fruit there and combined them with the peaches we have growing in our yard in Fresno. It creates a beautiful, fragrant and delicious jam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fresh fruit taste This recipe is my go to for peaches. We love the lower sugar content. It allows the natural flavor of the peaches to shine. I am wondering if this recipe can be preserved in 3 pint jars instead of 6 half pints safely though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids love this recipe! My children don't normally eat peaches unless they're in peach cobbler but for some reason they flocked to this jam. It's a reduced sugar recipe but it's still very sweet. I will absolutely make more batches, it's a keeper! Can I safely add cinnamon to this recipe?
