Nectarine & Orange Organic Jam

3 - large organic juice oranges
1 - organic lemon
3 pounds - (about 12) medium, firm ripe organic nectarines
6 cups - Florida Crystals® Organic Sugar

Grate the rinds of the oranges and lemon. Squeeze the juices and remove any seeds. Do not strain. Combine rinds and juices in a large heavy kettle or Dutch oven. Chop nectarines into citrus juices. Stir in sugar and bring to boil over medium heat, stirring often. Reduce heat and let simmer slowly until thickened, about 35 to 45 minutes. Stir frequently. (Do not cover.) Ladle into hot, sterilized canning jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Place lids on jars and tighten screw bands. Place jars on a rack in a pot of simmering water, making sure jars are completely covered by water. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 15 minutes; cool. Carefully remove jars from water. Check for proper seal. (If lid pushes down, but springs up, jar is improperly sealed; reprocess immediately.) Store in a cool, dark place.

Serving Quantity: Makes about 5 half-pints

Quick Tip:
Peeled organic peaches may be substituted for nectarines.
