Cranberry Pear Lemon Jam
Here is a special thank you to all the ladies that worked hard in the kitchen today to make our five recipes a possibility!
- 4 pc. large Bartlett Pears, peeled cored and diced (4 cups)
- 3 cups coarsely chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 t. grated lemon rind
- 2 T. bottled lemon juice
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
Combine pears, cranberries, water, and lemon rind in a large stainless steel pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, reduce heat and cook for 5 minutes stirring frequently.
Gradually add lemon juice and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil rapidly, uncovered, until mixture will form a gel, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
Ladle into hot jars, leaving ¼ headspace and process for 10 minutes at a full boil.
Makes 8 - 4 oz jars.
