This was awesome!!!! By far my favorite recipe for jams. Can't wait to try again with flavored rum!
I made this recipe with what I had. 1 c starawberries, 1 c peaches. I used strawberry/kiwi juice instead of pineapple. I used passionfruit rum. I added a half cup more of sugar. It is awesome. I need to make many more batches of this stuff.
Absolutely delicious! It is tangy and sweet. I left out the rum and it turned out perfectly! This is definitely a recipe that breaks the mold when it comes to canned jam.
I really liked this. Flavor is 5 stars. I used a dark spiced rum and it lent a just-right subtle flavor. Complaints are that the fruit has floated to the top and going by the leftovers that I tasted, I think it has more of a "jel" texture than I'm used to. I suppose that is the sacrifice we have to make with such a small amount of sugar.
Very unique tasty jam! Definately a keeper!
Tasty, sour-sweet exotic jam!
I made this Jam ages ago and have forgotten to review it. It's fabulous and not too sweet. I used the jam making setting on my breadmaker.
With respect to the last question, dry pectin comes in 1 3/4 ounce packages in the US and liquid pectin comes in 3 ounce packages. Dry it is. This is a wonderful recipe! Gave it away as a Christmas present to all the neighbors and everyone loved it. Making it again because of so many requests. Added a 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut to each batch. Since I used Pomona Pectin I was able to mix up 4 batches at a time. DO NOT however try this with conventional pectins - you are asking for trouble. Hope this helps. Jim in So. Calif.
This recipe sounds great, although I am unsure whether to use liquid pectin or crystals? Could someone pls clarify, I can't wait to try it!
Very nice flavor, never used the green food coloring. I use pineapple rum and it turned out very nice. There is no need to process in boiling water if the jam is poured into hot jars, they will seal.
