Daily Photo post #31
The pear trees at the barn have been showering down their goods for weeks. I have kept saying I was going to make a pear jam for everyone to enjoy - well today when I went to the barn there was a bucket of pears waiting for me so apparently tonight (or probably tomorrow) is the night...
Pear Jam here I come...
Here is the recipe in case you want to try
Easy pear jam recipe ingredients:
1 kg pears
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
300 grams sugar
1 box pectin powder
Pear preserves recipe instruction:
Wash and clean pears. Cut pears in pieces, add 3 tablespoons of sugar in it and cook it in low heat.
Wash lemon, shred lemon peel and cut lemon in slices.
When boiling pears soften, add lemon slices and lemon zest in it and cook it 5 minutes more.
Press fruits with a potato masher or process it in blender.
Pour rest of the sugar, cinnamon, ginger and powdered pectin in it. Cook it to boil again (stir it all the time) for 5 minutes more.
Pour hot pear jam in the clean warm jam jars, seal them and process for 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
