Lemon-Pineapple Jam

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kathy228

A not-too-tart combination. The lemon is delightful on cream cheesed crackers, buttered toast, or a cake filling.

Made this today. Would have rated it 5 stars except amount of lemons is questionable. I used 10 lemons and only came up with 1 C. puree, after removing the white pith and seeds. Solved that problem by adding a can of frozen pink lemonade after draining off most of the syrup from the frozen lemon pulp. Used wine (pino grigio) instead of water. It was a little funky colored due to the pink lemonade, but added a few drops yellow and pink food coloring when it was all cooked until the color mellowed out. This set nicely and made 12 4-oz. jars and 1 little dish for my fridge. Really nice tart/sweet taste, even hubby liked it and he's not a jam fan. Thanks for the recipe!
