Joey's notes for this recipe:
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.

Directions

1
Peel, core and dice pears.
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.
4
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.

you dont use any pectin? just checking, sounds wonderful want to make this for the holidays

it hasn't needed it, the pears have a natural pectin in them I'm guessing. It has really been one of the simplest jams to make.

thanks sounds so easy, I have made 8 different kinds of jam in the last 2 months for my business, everything form Hot pepper, to blueberry lime to apple cinnamon. So this sounds easy and inexpensive to make, :)
