Pineapple-Papaya Jam


  • 3 cups fresh pineapples,chopped
  • 2 cups ripe papaya, shredded
  • 3 tbsp calamansi juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 cups sugar


  1. Put pineapple, papaya, calamansi juice and water in a pot.
  2. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
  4. Boil the mixture in medium high heat until it reaches 220°F in a thermometer [setting point]. If you don’t have a thermometer, like me, [I still don’t have one] just boil/simmer it for 20 minutes.
  5. Skim the scum on top and put in sterilized jars.
  6. Set in the kitchen counter until it settles.
