    Nectarine Mango Jam (No Pectin Added!)

    by KM

    No Pectin Added Nectarine Mango Jam

    3 cups TOTAL Nectarines / Mangos – fairly ripe (see below for tips on amount of fruit needed*)
    1 1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 table spoons lemon juice
    **You’ve got choices when you make this jam. My household prefers “no chunks” in jams, so, I used a combination of nectarines/mangos that when pureed in food processor made up the 3 cups.

    – Chop up peeled fruit, enough to equal 3 cups. (I used my food process to blend)
    – If you are blending, pulse it on/off to ensure an even pureed and get rid of all the big chunks of fruit
    – Pour 3 cups of fruit into a medium size pot
    -Add Sugar / Lemon juice, and turn on to medium-high heat
    – Stir mixture so everything combines well
    – Bring fruit mixutre to a slow simmer, stirring frequently so you do not burn the bottom.
    -Jam should be reduced to almost half – about 30 or so minutes.
    – There are several ways to test in the no-pectin jam has jelled enough. The 2 method’s I’ve been using, are as follows:
    1 – using a candy thermometer, stick in the middle of jam, not touch bottom. Jam is ready when it hits 220F
    2 – Using a clean, cool metal spoon, dip spoon in jam, lift, and if the mixture drops off 2 drops at a time, it’s ready. (when you first put jam on stove, try it with the spoon, you’ll see the mixture oozes right off, when the jam is ready – it’ll just drip off 2 drops at a time)

    – Once Jam is ready, remove from heat, and ladle into the containers you are wishing to store the jam in. Make sure they are clean and dry.
    – Let cool on the counter, and if keeping it as fresh jam – place in fridge once cool!
