Cranberry Pear Jam

Joey Wolf Recipe

By Joey Wolf 8of10

My pear tree is loaded this year, they aren't large pears;but there is a gracious plenty of them. I especially liked the fact that this recipe was low in sugar.....for a jam.
I got this recipe from the book "Preserving Made Easy, Small Batches and Simple Techniques" by Ellie Topp and Margaret Howard.

water
2 tsp
lemon rind
2 Tbsp
lemon juice

Directions Step-By-Step

Chop cranberrys in food processor.
Frozen cranberrys are very noisy.....you might want ear protection, I did!
2
In a large heavy pan combine the pears, cranberrys, water and lemon rind. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook 5 min.
3
Gradually add in the lemon juice and sugar.
Boil rapidly for 15 minutes.
Process 10 minutes.

I didn't put in the usual steps for water bath canning. Sterilizing the jars, lids and rings;but you need to do that as usual.
