Ingredients:  
3 cans (20 oz each) crushed pineapple, very well drained
1/3 c freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions:
Prepare canning jars and lids and bring water in water bath canner to a boil.
In an 8-quart stainless steel stockpot, combine pineapple and lemon juice. In small bowl, combine pectin with 1/4 c of the sugar. Gradually stir into fruit. Add butter (if using). Bring fruit mixture to a full rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Gradually, stir in the remaining sugar. Return to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 1 minute. Remove pot from heat and skim off any foam. Stir in rum. Let jam cool in the pot for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Remove any air bubbles. Wipe jar rims and threads with clean, damp paper towel. Center hot lids on jars and screw on bands until finger tight.
Place jars in canner, making sure they are covered by at least 1 inch of water. Cover and bring to a gentle boil. Process 4-oz and 8-oz jars for 10 minutes and 1-pint jars for 15 minutes (plus 15 minutes if you're above 5,000 feet). Makes 8 8-oz jars.
