Title: (reduced-sugar) peach-pineapple spread
Categories: Canning, Fruits
Yield: 5 Half-pints
4 c Drained peach pulp
--(procedure as below)
2 c Drained crushed pineapple
1/4 c Bottled lemon juice
2 c Sugar (optional)
This recipe may be made with any combination of peaches, nectarines,
apricots, and plums.
This recipe may be made without sugar or with up to 2 cups, according
to taste or preference. Non-nutritive sweeteners may be added. If
aspartame (a low-calorie nutritive sweetener) is used, the sweetening
power of aspartame may be lost within 3 to 4 weeks.
Yield: 5 to 6 half-pints
Procedure: Thoroughly wash 4 to 6 pounds of firm, ripe peaches. Drain
well. Peel and remove pits. Grind fruit flesh with a medium or coarse
blade, or crush with a fork (do not use a blender). Place ground or
crushed fruit in a 2-quart saucepan. Heat slowly to release juice,
stirring constantly, until fruit is tender. Place cooked fruit in a
jelly bag or strainer lined with four layers of cheesecloth. Allow
juice to drip about 15 minutes. Save the juice for jelly or other
uses. Measure 4 cups of drained fruit pulp for making spread. Combine
the 4 cups of pulp, pineapple, and lemon juice in a 4-quart saucepan.
Add up to 2 cups of sugar, if desired, and mix well. Heat and boil
gently for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring enough to prevent sticking.
Fill jars quickly, leaving 1/4-inch headspace.
Adjust lids and process as recommended in Table 1.
