I thought PMS jam might just give you all a little chuckle, but honestly, it's blend of flavors, not to mention the beautiful rosy pink color will make any snow bound inhabitants cheery! It's so simple to make and the recipe easily makes 8 half-pint jars, which should last you through this long, cold winter.
Pineapple~Mango~Strawberry (PMS) Jam
1 quart Strawberries
1 can (20 oz) Crushed Pineapple in natural juice
1/2 tsp. unsalted butter
1 box SureJell powdered pectin
5 1/2 cups granulated sugar
8 half-pint jars with lids and seals
Prepare jars as previously directed.
In a food processor, place washed and drained strawberries and one mango. Pulse several time until pureed. Pour into a large Dutch Oven and add the crushed pineapple, including the juice. Stir in the box of powdered pectin and add 1/2 tsp. unsalted butter (it keeps the jam mixture from producing too much foam).
Bring the mixture to a low boil, stirring constantly. Add the sugar all at once and bring back to a boil.
Jam keeps one year, if it lasts that long. I have a little buddy who loves my jam and I'm sure he's going to love a jar or two of this PMS Jam. Enjoy!
