Today for our Canning Week Blog Party we are sharing some recipes for Jams and Jellies. I always think jams are a great place for beginning canners to start as they are easy to make, easy to can and quite tasty to eat. I will be sharing a recipe for an Apricot-Pineapple Preserve that has a citrus flavor that will tickle your tastebuds as you eat it and is sure to awaken your senses in the morning on your slice of toast for breakfast.
To get you started here is a recipe card which you can click on, print off and keep to make this for yourself.
In a food processor, puree 4 cups of drained pineapple. Then puree the softened apricots.
Meanwhile I have sterilized my jars and have them sitting in a sink full of hot water to keep them warm before adding hot jam to them.
I also have my lids and rings setting in bowls of warm water too.
I then place my lid on the jar.
And screw the ring over the lid on the jar tightly.
Lastly, I place the jam in pot of boiling water.
