DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the ingredients in a heavy large pot; stir to combine.
  • Attach a jelly thermometer to side of pan or place a small plate in freezer to chill for testing jam.
  • Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, adjusting heat as needed to maintain an even boil; boil for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • After 15 minutes of cooking check temperature on thermometer or test small portion of jam on chilled plate, return plate to freezer for 1 to 2 minutes, remove and run finger through sample. When the jam is set you can pull your finger through it and it doesn't run back together. During testing, remove jam from heat.
  • As jam sets you will be able to see the bottom of the pot when stirring. The temperature should be about 221 degrees F.
  • Pour the hot jam into 4 sterilized 8-ounce jars, carefully wiping jar rims; cover with lids and screw bands.
  • Process in boiling water bath for 5 minutes, remove from water bath, allow to cool; check seal.
