This recipe yields about 5 half-pint jars. Select fruit that is slightly under-ripe (still firm when you squeeze it).
5 kiwi (peeled and chopped)
1 Package Powdered Pectin
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
4 cups sugar
Combine kiwi, pectin, and pineapple juice in a large pot. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to boiling. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Fill hot canning jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Add lids and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.

I like to give this jam as a Christmas gift. If you give canned good as gifts, then a decorative jar topper kit is an easy way to make your canning jars look fancier.
