Sunshine Jam {Pina Colada}

Yum

Sunshine Jam is a tropical paradise just waiting for you to indulge in. It's a Pina Colada in a jam and is absolutely delicious.


Open a jar of this on a cold and dark fall or winter day and you'll immediately be transported to the islands, sitting on a beach in the hot sunshine with a nice cold beverage in your hand.

Sunshine Jam is amazing over cream cheese on crackers, but be sure to try it with grilled shrimp or chicken for a tasty tropical treat.





RECIPE
Ingredients
2 - 20 oz cans Dole crushed pineapple (with juice)
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tbls lime juice
1/2 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup coconut rum
2 pkgs Sure-Jell
7 cups sugar

Method
Add pineapple with juice, orange juice, lime juice, shredded coconut, coconut rum and Sure-Jell to a large stock pot.

Bring mixture to a rolling boil over high heat stirring often. Add sugar all at once and return to a full rolling boil. Boil hard one minute, stirring to prevent sticking (mixture will splatter, so be very careful).

Remove from heat and ladle into prepared mason jars, leaving 1/4-inch head-space. Cover jars with lids and rings and process 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.

Remove jars and let them sit 24 hours undisturbed on a kitchen towel on your counter-top. Jars are sealed when button on top of lid is fully depressed and won't move.

Store jars in pantry up to one year. Open jars must be refrigerated.

Yield: 11-12 half-pint jars

Enjoy,
