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.

How to Make Cranberry Pear Jam

Step-by-Step

  • 1Peel, core and dice pears.
    Chop cranberrys in food processor.
    Frozen cranberrys are very noisy.....you might want ear protection, I did!
  • 2In a large heavy pan combine the pears, cranberrys, water and lemon rind. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook 5 min.
  • 3Gradually add in the lemon juice and sugar.
    Boil rapidly for 15 minutes.
    Process 10 minutes.
  • 4I 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.
