"This jam is unbelieveable on toasted english muffins!"

Ready In:
4 cups approximately




  • In a large stainless steal or enamel pot melt the butter over medium heat, add sugars.
  • Stir until sugars are melted and then add remaining ingredients, stirring frequently for around 10 minutes, or until jam reaches a golden color-you do not want the jam as dark as the pie filling.
  • Ladle jam into steril hot jars leaving 1/2 inch head space, and process for 20 minutes for half pint jars in a boiling water bath, at altitudes up to 1000 feet.
  • Check seals when cool.
  • Keeps for up to 6 months-mine never makes it past 2, everyone eats it!
  • **Thisrecipe makes"around" 4 cups, depending on the nuts, how they are chopped and if you have tamped the measuring cup down well.

  1. I followed the directions but something went wrong recipe came out sticky and impossible to can.
  2. O.K.-thats twice-I will run through this and re-check how I posted compared to how I have it written-Di
  3. This recipe would be great if there were enough liquids.Please send corrections to Would really love to make this one. Sounds wonderful.Please post corrections as soon as possible.
  4. First how do you melt 5 cups of sugar into 1/2 lb. of butter. I really tried but ended up throwing in the rest of the pound. It still didn't melt, but stayed gritty. I really tried to give it the benefit of the doubt so I added the vinegar early to help it along. That wasn't much better, but fool that I am kept trying. It sounds so good!! I really shouldn't have done it but I went ahead and dumped ten bucks worth of pecans into the mess and kept cooking. I think I'll call it candy in a can...It needs more liquid ingredients and I'm not sure what they are. Then I got to thinking, is it even safe to can a product in a water bath canner that contains butter. It's in the canner waiting for some sort of miracle. If I can't pry it back out of the jars I'll just throw the whole mess out. I wonder how you get 5 cups of nuts into 4 cups...I ended up with slightly more than 8 cups with this recipe. I live at about 1600 feet. I'm sure that's not the problem.
  5. I followed the recipe exactally, but mine came out like hard pralines. I feel like there was a missing ingredient. The "candy" had a great taste though. I would love to have it as a jam.
