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).

Make 5 half pints 

1 and 1/2 pints of home canned pineapple - crushed - undrained
