I can't really take credit for this recipe. It comes from the instruction sheet that is inside the Sure-Jell box, but it is a tried and true recipe. I love making my own jams and jellies and my family loves eating them.
This is one of my favorite jams, especially since I can make it any time of the year using frozen fruit. It's really delicious! The mixture of fruits tastes so summery! I've been making it for years; I think I got it from Taste of Home magazine, but I can't remember now for sure. Prep time includes estimated time to cook jam and ladle into jars, cook time is time to sit and seal.
I had picked a small bowl full of blackberries and wanted to make jam with them. This only makes 1 pint and uses 3 cups of berries. Remember jam is softer than jelly. From Linda Ziedrich's The Joy of Jams, Jellies and other Sweet Preserves.
I love this and have mad this a few times. I have used both fresh and frozen berries with success. If using frozen raspberries measure then thaw and drain reserving the liquid. Measure the liquid and substitute for an equal amount of the water called for in the recipe. The recipe is for 0-1,000 feet elevation so adjust for your area.
We picked 6lbs wild boysenberries yesterday and had them home and turned into jam within 3 1/2 hours. It really is delicious stuff! The lemon helps setting and butter settles any scum that may have formed.I have always made jam by pouring into hot sterilized jars and have never killed anyone. If you would like to process in a hot water bath-feel free. I won't give directions here but someone in the canning forum could help you. I wash, dry then heat my jars in a hot oven while my jam cooks, then pour the jam in while the jars are hot out of the oven.
It was so hard for me to decide if I preferred blackberry or cherry preserves so I combined the two and came up with an absolutely delicious combination. This is scrumptious served over vanilla ice cream and topped with crumbled baked pie crust.
This recipe is a fantastic example of what can be done with Recipe#388177 . This recipe calls for 2 cups tomato green chile pineapple preserves that I was not able to enter under ingredients. This is goood eating when the weather gets cold.
Found this summery gem in the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service Guide E-326 - Home Canned Sweet Spreads Made
with Green Chile. http://aces.nmsu.edu/pubs/_e/E-326.pdf What a find for folks with tomatoes & peppers coming outta our ears! Will be adapting to our Mesilla Hybrid cayennes & brilliant yellow & orange cherry tomatoes that are producing like nothing we've ever seen to make a jam that will remind us of the sweetness & heat of summer.
One use for this recipe is Recipe#388105 - Mmmmm, sounds sooo good when the weather is cold & wet!
Found this in the New Mexico State University's Cooperative Extension Service Guide E-326 (Home Canned Sweet Spreads Made
with Green Chile) http://aces.nmsu.edu/pubs/_e/E-326.pdf Am up to my hips in tomatoes now so the peppers can wait a bit but I did not want to lose this gem. Sounds like it would be marvelous alongside a bit of crispy roast pork belly or high temp roasted duck when the cold rain is pounding down outside.
If you like pina coladas, you'll like this! It is perfect to warm and serve as a dip for coconut shrimp or coconut chicken strips. It can be used as a cake filling or for crepes. I, personally, prefer it right off the spoon. :) A friend sent this recipe to me knowing that I like "different" kinds of jams and jellies...and I like pina coladas also. Cooking time does not include time for water to boil in canner. Prep and cooking times are estimates.
Pineapple jam with spices added. I had allot of pineapple and needed to use it up, so I went looking for jam recipes. I could only find plain fruit jams, so I saw this recipe on the net for this Asian jam for jam tarts, but it took along time to cook. There was no name to the original recipe. So I took the spices, add more and then put it with the pectin pineapple jam I have made in the past. Hope you like it, it is good on toast, but allot of people have told me it is great on ice cream. I like it with ham. Time does not count 1 hour soak. Cooking time has canning time added to it.
