We Be Jammin'... Pear-Apple Jam



Pear-Apple Jam
From sugarcrafter

6 cups pears, peeled and finely chopped 

2 cups apples, peeled and finely chopped 

4 Tbsp lemon juice 

1 package (1.75 oz) powdered pectin 

1 tsp ground cinnamon 

6 cups granulated sugar

In a large pot, combine the pears, apples, and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until softened. Run the fruit through your food processor, and then return it to the pot. Prepare your canning supplies; sterilize the canning jars by running them in almost boiling water for several minutes, and boil a few cups of water in a small saucepan for the lids. Whisk in the cinnamon and pectin until dissolved. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently. Add in the sugar all at once and return to a full rolling boil for one minute. Remove from the heat and skim the foam off the top. Ladle hot jam into jars, leaving 1/4″ headspace. Wipe rim and center lids on jars, and then screw down bands just until resistance is met. Place jars in canner, ensuring they are covered with water, and boil for 10 minutes.

Makes 6 eight-ounce jars.
