MCP Apricot-Pineapple Jam
Ingredients:

3 cups prepared fruit (buy about 2 lb. fully ripe apricots)
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 box MCP Pectin
1/4 tsp. butter or margarine
8 cups sugar, measured into separate bowl

Instruction:

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 jars well before filling. Chop finely or grind unpeeled and pitted apricots. Measure exactly 3 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add crushed pineapple and lemon juice. Stir pectin into prepared fruit in saucepot. 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 sugar. Return to a full rolling boil and boil exactly 4 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 a 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.)
