Fresh Fruit Tart

Add sugar and mix well with fruit mixture until sugar is dissolved. Boil the mixture, without stirring, for about 15 minutes. Turn off heat and using a thermometer check temperature. It should reach 104 Centigrade (220 Fahrenheit). Using a slotted spoon dispose of the foam. Let the jam cool slightly. Fill the jam into clean and heated jars.
