Default Jam vs Fresh Fruit

Hello all,

I'm New here. Have made 3 batches of beer prior to my next project batch.

I am planning a peach blonde. I have Peach jam bought at a local farm stand which lists as ingredents just peaches and sugar. I have read post on this forum which say boiling or pasturizing fruit will lead to pectin haze. If I put this jam in the secondary will it still cause pectin haze?

Thanks in advance,
Bchbound

It certainly will. That said, do you care? If you do add a bit of pectic snzyme from the homebrew store, it will clear it right up. I have used raspberry jam in a stout with good luck, it lends a bit more of a cooked fruit character that goes well with a dark beer, I would opt for fresh in a pale beer personally.
