  • Bring boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot, soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Mix apricots, dates, pineapple, cherries, pecans, raisins, water, lemon juice and spices in 6- or 8-quart saucepot.
  • Stir sugar into fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in pectin quickly. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches; add boiling water if needed. Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to

Measure Precisely: To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

Jam or Jelly Didn't Set?

Every once in a while, you may find that your jam does not set the way you expected. If your efforts resulted in a runny batch, try our Remake Directions to improve your finished jam. If your jam still doesn't set, you can always use it as a glaze or syrup.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is made before Thanksgiving, always a few jars left for Christmas, so refreshing! This is made before Thanksgiving, always a few jars left for Christmas, so refreshing!!! Hot rolls, pancakes, toast, biscuits and danish pastries are so much tastier. Melting of the juices or syrups are wonderful in pastires and on top of some pies.

When you get everything chopped, it doesn't look so good and it seems like it'll be too sweet. But it turns out beautifully. Not too sweet, excellent colour. Just a fantastic, simple recipe.
