Making mixed fruit jam

Asked June 22, 2019, 3:05 PM EDT

Hi, if I mix various fruits, how do I know how much sugar to use, whether to use pectin, etc? How do I create a recipe? Right now I'm wanting to combine mangoes and strawberries. And apricots with ? Thanks! Carolyn

IT is not recommended to create recipes for home food preservation. It is very difficult to determine amounts and ingredients to make this a safe product. MSU Extension recommends the following resources:

Ball Blue Book
USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning (see USDA website for free download)
So Easy to Preserve from the University of Georgia Extension
