Orange-Pineapple Freezer Preserves

If you're new to canning, freezer preserves are an excellent place to start. Most use instant pectin, need minimal cooking, and are not processed in boiling water. Even if you're an old hand at putting up, you'll appreciate this recipe. It's as easy and sunny as a Southern Saturday morning, and it won't heat up your kitchen.

Yield: Makes: 4 (1/2-pt.) jars for the freezer
