Blender Pineapple Jam
1 envelope unflavored gelatin (Knox or store brand)
2 Tbls. water or apple juice
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice
sugar, to taste*
Sprinkle gelatin on cold water or juice in blender or food processor; wait one minute to soften. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Bring juic to a boil and add to gelatin in blender. Cover and blend until gelatin granules dissolve (scrape down sides of blender). Add pineapple, cover and blend till smooth. Sweeten to taste. Pour into 3 hot, sterilized half pint jars, add lids and store in fridge after it cools. It will set up while in refrigerator.
You could turn these jars upside down for 5 minutes to seal, then right side up, if you like.
Makes about 3 cups.
*Original recipe said to sweeten with artificial sweetener or sugar, and I am using sugar as it is a healthier choice.
