Pear Jam (Using hard nearly ripe Manitoba grown pears)
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 cup finely chopped pears
  • 1 package Certo or pectin of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 5 cups sugar
  1. Pour 1 cup of apple juice and ¼ cup of water into large cooking pot. This liquid will help to keep the chopped pears from going brown as you peel and chop them!
  2. Peel and pit and chop finely 4 cups of pears adding to the pot as they are done.
  3. Add 1 package of Certo or pectin of your choice.
  4. I add about 1 teaspoon of butter which helps reduce foaming.
  5. Heat the fruit and let simmer for 3 or 4 minutes to cook and soften the pears. Turn up high to rolling boil stirring constantly.
  6. Add 5 cups of sugar and bring to a rolling boil for 1 minute.
  7. Take off stove and stir for about 5 minutes or all the fruit will rise to the top.
  8. Pour into prepared jars.
  9. Place in water bath for 10 minutes.
  10. This will make about six 250 ml jars of jam.
