Cranberry Pear Jam

Joey Wolf


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.
