What You’ll Need:

Before we dive in, let’s make sure we have all the necessary ingredients and equipment. Below is a list of everything you’ll need:

  • 4 cups of peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Champagne or sparkling white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Fruit pectin (follow package instructions for quantity)
  • Large saucepan
  • Wooden spoon or spatula
  • Canning jars with lids and bands

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Combine the peaches, sugars, and lemon juice in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved, bring the mixture to a boil and continue to stir for about 5 minutes until jam has thickened.
  2. Add Champagne or sparkling white wine along with remaining lemon juice into the mixture and continue stirring without boiling it for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Gradually add the fruit pectin (use according to package instructions). Stir continuously while cooking it on high heat for another 5 minutes.
  4. Once the jam has thickened and cooked thoroughly, remove it from the heat source. Let it cool down for around 8-10 minutes so that it can solidify further.
  5. While waiting for the jam to cool down slightly, set up your canning jars by washing them thoroughly in hot soapy water as well as the lids and bands.
  6. Ladle the jam into the jars, leaving a 1/4 inch headspace at the top.
  7. Wipe off the sides of the jar with a clean cloth to remove any excess jam that might be on them. Place the lid on top of each jar, screw it tight with a band, but not too tight.
  8. Process in boiling water for 10 minutes to seal and set jars properly. Remove jars from boiling water and let them cool down at room temperature. You should hear the seal pop which is an indication that it has sealed correctly.
  9. Let the jam sit for at least a day so that it can set completely.

Pro Tips:

  • This recipe makes a small batch which is perfect for those new to jam making or want to create multiple batches of unique flavors.
  • You can substitute peaches with white peaches if they are available in your region.
  • If you want to mix some other flavors, try Peach Raspberry Champagne Jam – this requires you to mix in a cup of rasp

Reduced-sugar peach champagne jam recipe provides us a delicious and healthy way to enjoy the summer peaches throughout the year. Here are some tips that can help you get the perfect results and a taste that you will remember forever.

To ensure perfect taste, use fresh peaches during the summer season, when they are at their peak of flavor. Buy peaches that are firm and without blemishes or bruises. If you have to use frozen peaches, make sure they are fully thawed before blending.

Be mindful of your sugar proportions in the recipe. You could use artificial sweeteners to cut down on sugar or use natural granulated sugar as well. However, don’t reduce sugar content in your champagne lemon juice mix as it is what gives a unique twist to the jam’s flavor profile.

Adding lemon juice also helps balance the sweetness and acidity in this reduced-sugar peach champagne jam recipe. Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for optimal flavor results.

While boiling fruits and sugar over high heat is important, avoid boiling the mixture too hard. Otherwise, you may risk burning the jam and altering its flavor. Stir often to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Use a larger pot than required because once boiled, this recipe tends to foam up quite high, and by using larger pots there will be room for expansion.

Lastly, when sealing jam in jars for storing purposes, leave some space between the top lid of the jar and the mixture to allow air expansion following cooling. Store them in a cool, dry place away from light until ready to consume.

These tips will help you make incredible reduced-sugar peach champagne jam that everyone will beg for your recipe!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Reduced-Sugar Peach Champagne Jam Recipe is perfect for those who want to enjoy the sweet and tangy flavor of peaches without the guilt of excessive sugar consumption. The balance of sparkling white wine and peach creates a delectable taste that will leave you craving for more.

By opting for low-sugar alternatives like artificial sweeteners or reduced sugar granulated sugar, you can still enjoy the best of both worlds without compromising on taste. With the addition of lemon juice to enhance the natural fruit flavors, this recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

You can also experiment with different fruit combinations like raspberry peach or white peach jam to create your unique version of this champagne jam recipe. Not only does it make a great breakfast spread or dessert topping, but it’s perfect for gift-giving and canning as well.

swiped off the bernardin website and modified since i couldn't find another recipe like this anywhere. all the others either used gelatin, were ment to be kept in the fridge instead of canned, or were about 90% sugar. i haven't actually tried this yet but i'm hoping it will taste a bit like a bellini. i'm going to serve it over ice cream and in yogurt.
