  • 6 ounce can of unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 3 cups white sugar

  3. Remove from heat and skim off any foam that is on the surface.
  4. Ladle hot jam into jars, filling to within ¼” of the top.
  5. With a clean, warm, damp cloth, quickly wipe off the rims of the full jars and put the two piece lids on.
  6. Process the jars in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Remove and cool on the counter for 24 hours before moving or touching. Listen for that marvelous ping!
