SURE-JELL Premium Fruit Pectin

What You Need

2-1/2
cups  prepared fruit (buy about 1-1/2 lb. fully ripe black figs)
1
cup  water
1/4
cup  fresh lemon juice
3-1/2
cups  sugar, measured into separate bowl, divided
1
box  SURE-JELL For Less or No Sugar Needed Recipes Premium Fruit Pectin
1/2
tsp.  butter or margarine

Make It

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.

TRIM stem ends from figs. Finely chop or grind fruit. Measure exactly 2-1/2 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in water and lemon juice.

MIX 1/4 cup of the sugar (from the measured amount in the bowl) and pectin in small bowl. Add to fruit in saucepot; mix well. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 3-1/4 cups sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

LADLE immediately 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 necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

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.
