One of the things I look forward to every summer is the arrival of peaches! There are so many things we do with peaches from our Honey Canned Peaches without sugar, Low sugar Canned peaches, Peach fruit leather, and we even freeze peaches without sugar! But the most recent method is our maple Peach Jam recipe!
What is so unique about this Maple Peach Jam is that it doesn’t contain any sugar. It is sweetened solely with pure maple syrup! And it has such a rich flavor that isn’t overly sweet! And the peach flavor really shines through.
Like I mentioned in our Strawberry Rhubarb Jam recipe, I don’t like really sweet jams. So my sweet level is usually about half of regular recipes. We use less sweetener which means the natural fruit flavor really comes through instead of a sugary taste.

The processing time in a water bath is based on your altitude above sea level. Altitudes 1,000-3,000 feet you need to add 5 minutes. 3,001- 6,000 feet you need to add 10 minutes. 6,001- 8,000 feet needs to add 15 minutes. 8,001-10,000 feet need to add 20 minutes to your processing time.
So for my house in the Wasatch area of Utah, we process our Jam for a total of 20 minutes in a water bath.
This maple peach jam recipe is great to spread on waffles, pancakes, German pancakes, toast, biscuits, rolls and a number of other goodies! Miss Jade personally loves adding it to her Peanut Butter sandwiches.
