Dishes & Beverages
lbs peeled, sliced fresh pears
juice of one lemon
tablespoons freshly minced ginger root
Combine prepared pears with sugar, cinnamon, ginger, lemon juice, and water. Bring to a boil, cook over low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally until the pear slices are translucent.
Sterilize glass jars and lids in boiling water, pour the jam into the jars, tighten the lids tightly and turn upside down. Leave to cool completely.
If you want to get jam with pear pieces, use hard, slightly unripe pear varieties. Soft and ripe pears make a great pear puree.
Be sure to add lemon juice. The high acidity prevents the multiplication of pathogens that can appear in sealed cans.
