How to Make Pear Pineapple Preserves!

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare and sterilize jars and jar rings. Keep jars warm in boiling hot water or on the Heated dry setting of your dishwasher until ready to use. I generally use the Rinse cyle just before using the jars for canning.
  2. Mash pears, add crushed pineapple and juice. Pour fruit into a 6 or 8 quart saucepan.
  3. Gradually stir in pectin. Over high heat, and stirring constantly bring fruit to full boil that cannot be stirred down.
  4. Add entire amount of sugar all at once and stir to dissolve. Return to a full rolling boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  5. Skim foam from top. Ladle into hot jars and fill 1/8 inch from the top. Make sure to use a wet paper towel to clean rim of jar of any preserve on rim.
  6. Carefully place lids and tighten rings. Process in a water boiling canner or steam canner for 5 minutes for 1/2 Pints and 10 minutes for Pints.
  7. Add an additional five minutes for every 3,000 miles above sea level.
  8. Enjoy and don't forget to give a few away for others to enjoy too!! :) Enjoy Jamming!!
