Fruit Jam - Lynn Johnson

I invented this jam recipe last weekend and it turned out pretty good.
It's made from assorted fruit on hand. I call it
RICO SUAVE (rich and sweet)
6 peaches,chopped
1 papaya, chopped
1 mango, cut fruit off seed as much as you can
thinly sliced slivers of lime peel
3 apricots, chopped
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
7 1/2 cups sugar
Cook the fruit for a few minutes until it is soft. Measure out 5 cups fruit.
(If the above doesn't measure 5 cups fruit cooked, add more or any of the
above, I think I would prefer more peaches or apricots).
Add sugar, stir to dissolve
Bring to rolling boil and add 1 pkg Certo*, bring to boil and cook
for 1 minute.
Ladle into sterilized jars. Yield about 10 half pint jars.
It takes a while to set, probably because of the apricots and peaches..
*Certo is packed pectin.
