How To Make And Can Pineapple Jam Recipe

Looking to do some home canning this year? If so, this is a great jam recipe to start with. It is very easy to prepare and great for beginners.

Pineapple Jam Recipe for Home Canning

1 quart finely chopped, cored, peeled pineapple (about 5 pounds)
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup water

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly to gelling point, about 30 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. (I like to use my Tupperware Saucy Silicone Spatula for this task.) Remove from heat. Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving 1/2" head space. Apply caps and seals. Process the jars for 15 minutes in a boiling water bath canner.

Super easy to prepare and tastes great! You can use pineapple jam on all kinds of things and it makes a great foodie gift come holiday time.
