Description

My garden is full of fresh jalapenos this time of year and I have had to get very creative with them. I always make the normal hot pepper jelly, but once I made this pineapple jam, everyone has fallen in love with it. It’s great with cream cheese on a biscuit at breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Fresh Pineapple, Diced About 4 Cups Or 2 20-oz Cans Of Crushed Pineapple In Own Juice, Drained Well
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Jalapeños, Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Butter Or Margarine
  • 3 ounces, weight Liquid Fruit Pectin (one Foil Pouch)

Preparation

First if using fresh pineapple you will want to dice it up and pulse it in your blender.

Next, in a 4 to 5 quart pot, combine the sugar, pineapple, lemon juice, jalapenos, and butter.

Cook over high heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.

Stir in the fruit pectin

Return the mixture to a full rolling boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

DO NOT OVERCOOK!
Remove from heat.

Skim off any foam with a metal spoon.

*Ladle the hot jam into sterilized jars and top with hot lids to ensure that they seal*

I wash my jars in the dishwasher and then run the heat cycle once I get started making the jam. Then I put the lids into a small pot of water and get them very hot with really not boiling them. This really ensures that the jars will seal.

What is the shelf life or does it need to be water bath?

That sounds wonderful! We will again have extra peppers in our garden this year, so I may have to try this!

Very good as written, except I used 2 whole jalapenos (about 5 tbsp. minced) instead of the 2 tbsp. as stated in the recipe, and I can hardly taste the jalapeno or any heat… I may leave in some seeds next time… overall, excellent flavour, my fresh pineapples were super juicy and sweet. Thanks for the recipe!
