Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Peel and core pears. Finely chop or grind fruit. Measure exactly 4 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Add sugar; stir. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    I made this with my 5 year old daughter and it turned out terrific!!! She has given a jar to all of our neighbors and her teacher and they all loved it! Just don't get discouraged it may take a day or two for it to set completely.

    My mother-in-law and I have made this recipe twice. It has not set both times. I am wondering if there is too much sugar for the recipe. The sure-gel recipe calls for less sugar and less lemon juice. We are going to make that next. This recipe tastes great, but only make it if you want to pour your jelly!

    I make this recipe at least twice a year. I give it to family and teachers. It is my daughter's all time favorite for PB&J. Every one loves it! It has always set for me. Try adding a tablespoon of cinnamon to make it really unusual and special. Really yummy!
