4 ounces Dried Rosehips (deseeded)
1 Pound Mixed Dried Fruit
4 Cups Water
1 Cup Honey
1 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Large Orange, chopped (seeds removed, leave rind on)
Combine dried fruit, rose hips, water, and chopped orange in a large pan.
Over high heat, bring the pan to a boil. Then lower heat and cover pot.
Get the jars, lids, rings, and water bath canner ready.
Simmer gently, until the fruit is soft and almost all of the water is absorbed. Be patient this may take a little bit of time and will vary based on fruits used.
Puree the mixture as much or as little as desired. Use a potato masher to keep it chunkier or a food processor to get it very smooth.
Return the puree to the pot, add the honey and lemon juice.
Cook until the mixture is thick, stirring with a wooden spoon occasionally to prevent scorching.
Put the jam mixture into jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles, wipe jar rims, place lids and rings.
Process in boiling water bath for 20 minutes
