How to Make Fruit Preserves from Leftover Fruit Salad

Fruit Salad

There are about two cups of fruit salad.

Measure fruit

I added 1 cup of sugar to the fruit in a pot, so about a 2:1 fruit:sugar ratio.

Sugar and fruit in pot

Heat the mix until the sugar melts, then mash to smaller pieces of fruit. I used a stick blender which is very fast. Leave some small chunks of fruit for flavor and texture.

Bring to a boil, then simmer until some of the water boils off.

If you are going to save this it should then be moved to a pressure canner, since I was going to use it immediately I just poured into a jar and put into the refrigerator.
