Joey's Story

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.


4 c
peeled, cored, diced pears
3 c
chopped cranberrys
1/2 c
2 tsp
lemon rind
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 3/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel, core and dice pears.
Chop cranberrys in food processor.
Frozen cranberrys are very might want ear protection, I did!
In a large heavy pan combine the pears, cranberrys, water and lemon rind. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook 5 min.
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.

I used to make a green pepper jelly, you served it with crackers and cream cheese. I'll look to see if I still have it.

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, :)

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.
