Easy recipe to use up your ripe fruit!
Ingredients
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
  • 6 apricots, peeled and diced
  • 3 Tbsp Ball RealFruit Classic Pectin
  • Juice of one lemon (or 2 Tbsp bottled lemon juice)
  • ½ tsp butter
  • 1¾ cups sugar, preferably organic cane sugar (unbleached)
Instructions
  1. Wash and peel mangos and apricots and cut them in small pieces.
  2. Sprinkle pectin along bottom of jam maker.
  3. Add fruit evenly over pectin.
  4. Squeeze lemon juice over fruit.
  5. Add ½ tsp butter to top (helps to prevent foaming).
  6. Press JAM button, then press enter. Cook time will be 21 minutes.
  7. After 4 minutes machine will beep prompting you to add sugar. Add sugar and place glass lid on top of jam maker.
  8. minutes later your jam will be ready. The jam maker stirs continously and keeps the fruit at the right temperature.
  9. Makes 4 HALF PINTS OF JAM!
  10. * If you don't have a jam maker, then just put these ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat till bubbly. Turn burner to low and cook till thick....stirring as needed to keep jam from sticking to the bottom. This usually takes me around 30 minutes give or take. You can cut back the sugar (use ¾ or 1 cup) if you want. Or try it with honey (1/2 - ¾ cup)
