I found a recipe online for nectarine jam. It stated that nectarine skin has natural pectin and jam would set as long as the fruit wasn't peeled (Note: no pectin listed in the ingredient list). Just for fun, I decided to experiment with the microwave. The result was oh, so delicious. I made mine in the microwave-safe cup of the Magic Bullet® and blended it right in the cup.

I tried this because I had the ingredients and it seemed so simple. However, it was to start and my nectarines were very ripe and sweet. I salvaged it somewhat by adding a 1/2 cup more sugar. It tastes better bit the consistency is too thin to be considered jam. Read More
