1. Locate and mark off fruit recipe on chart below. Check 8 ounce jars for defects. Because containers are not filled to the rim, one more container than the specified Yield may be needed.
If jams will not be placed in boiling water bath, wash, scald and drain jars, or use automatic dishwasher was very hot rinse water. Keep hot.
If jams will not be placed in boiling water bath, wash jars and sterilize in boiling water for 10 minutes. Keep hot.
Wash lids in place in a small container. Cover with cooling water shortly before placing on filled jars. Always use new lids.
2. Prepare fruit as directed in recipe.
3. Measure amount of prepared fruit specified in recipe ingredient listing, pack solidly in cup. If measure is slightly short, add water. Place measured fruit in 6 or 8 quart sauce pot. Add lemon juice, if listed.
4. Measure sugar and set aside. DO NOT REDUCE SUGAR.
5. Stir fruit pectin into prepared fruit. (Sauce pot must be no more than 1/2 full to allow for full rolling boil.)
6. Bring to a full boil over high heat stirring constantly. At once stir in sugar. Stir and bring to a full rolling boil. (A boil that cannot be stirred down). Then boil hard one minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
7. Skim off foam with large metal spoon. Immediately ladle into jars leaving inch space at top. With a damp cloth, wipe jars and threads clean.

9. Place in boiling water bath carefully setting jars on rack in canner or large sauce pot of boiling water. Water should cover jars by 1 to 2 inches.
