Carrot Cake Preserves

Ingredients
2
cups finely shredded carrots (4 medium)
1
15 ounce can crushed pineapple (juice pack), undrained
1
cup finely chopped, peeled pear (1 medium)
2
tablespoons lemon juice
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1
1 3/4 ounce package regular powdered fruit pectin or 6 tablespoons classic powdered fruit pectin
2
cups packed brown sugar
1/4
cup flaked coconut or raisins (optional)
1
teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart heavy pot combine carrots, pineapple, pear, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Sprinkle mixture with pectin; stir until pectin is dissolved.
  2. Bring carrot mixture to boiling, stirring constantly. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon. Stir in coconut (if desired) and vanilla.
  3. Ladle hot jam into hot sterilized half-pint canning jars, leaving a 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rims; adjust lids and screw bands.
  4. Process filled jars in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes (start timing when water returns to boiling). Remove jars from canner; cool on wire racks. Makes 7 half-pints.
