We Be Jammin'... Pineapple and Peach Jam with Mint

Pineapple and Peach Jam with Mint
Found on cookinginthecrescentcity.wordpress

Makes 8 half pints 


1 and a half pineapples (about 6 cups), washed, peeled, eyes removed, quartered, and cored. 

Chop into small pieces. 

6 cups of peaches, peeled, pitted, and chop into pieces 

2 cups of sugar 

4 tablespoons of lemon juice 

1 and 1/2 tablespoons of minced fresh mint 


Put pineapple, peaches, and sugar into a pot and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until the juices are just starting to cover the fruit. Pour the mixture into a colander or mesh strainer and set it over a large bowl, stirring the fruit around to extract as much liquid as you can. Return that juice to the pan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the syrup is thick and reduced, about 10 minutes. Return your fruit along with any excess juices that may have accumulated to the pot, along with 4 tablespoons of lemon juice and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the fruit is very tender, about 15 minutes. Once it reaches the desired consistency (to a jam consistency, this jam will not gel), remove from the heat and stir in your 1 – 2 tablespoons of mint. Ladle into your jars to 1/4 inch headspace, remove air bubbles, wipe rims, and assemble lids. Process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.

We Be Jammin'... Pina Colada Jam X2

Pina Colada Jam 1
Found on

If you like pina coladas, you'll like this! It is perfect to warm and serve as a dip for coconut shrimp or coconut chicken strips. It can be used as a cake filling or for crepes. I, personally, prefer it right off the spoon. :) A friend sent this recipe to me knowing that I like "different" kinds of jams and jellies...and I like pina coladas also. Cooking time does not include time for water to boil in canner. Prep and cooking times are estimates.


* 3 1⁄2 cups fresh pureed pineapple (NOT canned!) 

* 1 cup cream of coconut (I use Coco Lopez, do NOT use coconut milk) 

* 1⁄3 cup white rum 

* 1⁄4 cup lemon juice 

* 6 1⁄2 cups sugar

* 2 (3 ounce) envelopes liquid pectin


* In a large heavy bottomed pot, mix together pineapple puree, cream of coconut, rum, and lemon juice.

* Stir in sugar and bring to a full rolling boil (one that can't be stirred down) over high heat.

* Stir constantly, boil hard for three minutes.

* Remove from heat and stir in pectin.

* Skim off any foam.

* Ladle into sterilized jars to within 1/4 inch of rim. Wipe rim clean.

* Apply lids and rings and tighten rings just fingertip tight.

* Process jars in boiling water bath canner for 5 minutes.

* Let sit at room temperature until set.

* Check seals -- center of lids should be indented.

* Refrigerate any unsealed jar up to 3 weeks.

* NOTE: Do NOT use coconut milk!

* This made 9 half pints and 1 quarter pint(1/2 cup).

We Be Jammin'... Pickled Strawberry Jam

Pickled Strawberry Jam
Found on cooking.nytimes

Makes 3 half pints 

1-3/4 cups sugar 

1 Tbsp powdered pectin 

1 tsp salt 

3 cups strawberries, hulled 

2 Tbsps sherry vinegar 

1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar 

5 coriander seeds 

1 cardamom pod 

In a bowl, whisk the sugar, pectin and salt to combine. If a seedless jam is desired, puree the berries in a blender and strain through a fine-meshed sieve. Otherwise, leave them whole, or cut large ones into quarters. In a medium saucepan, combine the sherry vinegar, rice wine vinegar, coriander and cardamom. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and immediately remove from heat. Remove and discard the coriander seeds and cardamom. 

Return the saucepan to medium heat and add the sugar mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon until blended; it will be dry at first. Add the strawberries or strawberry purée, and continue to stir, crushing the berries with the spoon, until the mixture is liquefied and comes to a boil. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 3 minutes. 

Fill the jars up to 1/2 inch headspace. Wipe rims and assemble lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath canner.

We Be Jammin'... Pecan Amaretto Jam

Pecan Amaretto Jam
Found on cookingwithmaryandfriends

Yield: 9 half-pint jars

5 cups chopped pecans 

1/2 lb. butter (2 sticks)

2 cups apple juice 

3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar 

1 box Sure-Jell (instant pectin) 

5 cups white sugar 

5 Tbsp. dark brown sugar 

2 Tbsp. ground ginger 

1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon 

4 Tbsp. Amaretto liqueur


In a large stainless steel or enamel pot melt the butter over medium heat with apple juice and vinegar; add pecans and Sure-Jell and bring to a rolling boil. Mix spices with sugars and add all at once to pot; return to a rolling boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and carefully add the Amaretto, stirring until combined. *Ladle jam into sterile hot jars leaving 1/4 inch head space (see note below). Process jars for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath. Remove canner from heat, and remove jars. Let jars cool on a kitchen towel on your counter-top. Jars are sealed when button on lid depresses completely (you will hear it “pop” or “ping” when it seals). As jam cools, gently shake jars from time to time to evenly distribute the pecan pieces in the jam (this may take a few hours as it cools and thickens).

*Cook's note - to evenly distribute pecans to liquid, use a slotted spoon to add pecans to jars, then ladle sauce over pecans leaving a 1/4 inch head-space. *In accordance with safe canning practices, this jam must be kept in the refrigerator and is not considered shelf-stable. This jam will keep several months in the refrigerator.
