Fresh Fruit Jam

Nothing beats the taste of fresh fruit jam. And when you make it yourself, you can control the amount of sugar used.

Serves 96

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 12 cups prepared fresh fruit, peeled if desired (see Tip)
  • 1-2 cups granulated sugar, or brown sugar (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1.75-ounce “no sugar needed” pectin, (see Note)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine fruit, sugar to taste and water in a Dutch oven. Bring to a vigorous boil and crush fruit with a potato masher until desired consistency. Add pectin in a steady stream, stirring constantly. Stir until the pectin is dissolved. Bring to a full rolling boil (a boil that cannot be “stirred down”), stirring constantly. Boil, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

Step 2

If freezing or refrigerating, ladle the jam into clean canning jars to within 1/2 inch of the rim. Wipe rims clean. Cover with lids. Let the jars stand at room temperature until set, about 24 hours, before refrigerating or freezing. Or process in a water bath to store at room temperature (see Tip).
