Can I Make Jam or Preserves Out of Sapodilla?

Good Questions

Q: Do you know if anyone ever makes jam or preserves out of sapodilla?

I live in South Florida, and I have so many, and I hate to throw them away. But I think maybe I could make a sort of jam. Do you know?

Editor: Readers, have you ever tried making a jam, preserve, or fruit butter out of this fruit? I've only eaten it fresh, but I'm intrigued by the thought of this fruit preserved. Anyone ever tried it?
