Found this recipe somewhere online and adapted it to my tastes. I love carrot cake, so why not have a jam that tastes like it. I added coconut and walnuts to this recipes. Even though coconut isn't in traditional carrot cake, I thought I'd try it in this recipe.
1In a large saucepan, combine the first eleven ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pears are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; stir in pectin.
2Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; skim off foam.
3Ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. head space. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process in a boiling-water canner for 5 minutes. Yield: 8 half-pints.
