We Be Jammin'... Spiced Nectarine Jam

Spiced Nectarine Jam
Found on bestintentionsmom.wordpress

Makes abt 8 or 9 half pints

6 cups peeled, pitted, chopped ripe Nectarines 

1/2 cup packed, light brown sugar 

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 

1/4 tsp ground allspice 

5 cups sugar 

1/2 cup lemon juice 

2 boxes pectin 

1/2 teaspoon butter

Mix the sugar and spices in a large bowl and set aside.

In your pot, mix chopped nectarine, lemon juice, pectin and butter.

Stir constantly as you bring it to a boil over high heat. When it is at a full, rolling boil add the sugar mixture and stir it well.

Bring it back to a full boil and let it boil hard for 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove it from the heat and skim foam. Ladle into jars leaving a 1/4 inch head-space and process in the water canner for about 15 minutes.
