Fresh Fruit Jam

From EatingWell:  May/June 2009

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

6-8 cups | Active Time: 20-40 minutes | Total Time: 20-40 minutes (depending on type of fruit)

Ingredients

Preparation

  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.
  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).
