Cantaloupe Jam: I lost the recipe!! : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Help! I lost the recipe for cantaloupe jam. It was on a thread by a different name, and therefore could not find it under the "food" listings. If anyone else wrote it down, please post it!!!

Cantaloupe Jam

2 large cataloupes, peeled, cut into pieces.

2 lemons, juiced

2 oranges, juiced and rinds

1 can #2 1/2 size pineapple tidbits, drained

sugar, the same amount as fruit

1 small bottle maraschino cherries

Combine all ingredients except the cherries. Cook over low heat until thick, about 1 1/2 hours.

Quarter cherries and add the last 15 minutes of cooking time.

To test for doneness, take a tablespoon full from kettle and place in the freezer for a few minutes. If it is thick, it is done.

Immediately ladle into hot, sterile jars and seal.

Hello Graybear and justme: Over on the forum, under the canning corner, there's a post on preserving cantaloupe...and 3 or 4 different recipes are listed. They all look good! My canteloupe is just now softball size.....I can hardly wait!!
