I devised this recipe when I wanted a variation of plum jam and thought why not use canned crushed pineapple? The result was beautiful jewel-tone jam with a pleasing fruit combo of flavors and textures. No added commercial pectin here, so if the thought of standing and stirring, oh about a half hour, scares you away, go with the standard recipes on pectin containers instead. But I enjoy cooking jam mixtures without adding pectin because once they reach that "sheet" or "spoon" test stage, there's no guesswork or split second timing - you are guaranteed the consistency is perfect for jam. Yield 6 half-pints, each jar with 16 tablespoon servings of yummy jam.
