For the month of August I am sharing new recipes for preserving fruits (September will be all about vegetables!) and I thought I'd start this mini-series out with a list of the fruit recipes that have already been published on AOC (you can see all the preserving recipes here or in the recipe index). To round them out, I gathered fabulous recipes from other websites that you might find useful as the season's fruit harvest continues.
By August most of us have harvested berries, rhubarb, currants, and the first of the apples. We're starting to see plums, peaches, nectarines, more apples, grapes, and looking forward to fall's pears. No matter what you grow or find at a fruit stand or market, there's a recipe here for you. And remember, many of the recipes can be used for other fruits - for example, jam recipes are easy to substitute other similar fruits and nectarines and peaches are interchangeable. Happy 'putting up!"

Do you have a low sugar blueberry jam recipe?
No, but this chia seed blackberry freezer jam is low sugar and works great with blueberries, too: https://anoregoncottage.com/chia-seed-no-cook-blackberry-freezer-jam-recipe/
Jami, just finding this two months later. I am humbled you would include my jam recipe--but also excited to check out some of the others you have up there. Thank you for putting this list together.
