I purchased a huge box of anjou pears for a local FFA fund-raiser. I wanted to try to duplicate the fantastic pear jam my parents made when I was a child. Well, I have no idea if this is the recipe (they did use Sure-Jell), but it sure tastes great! What I particularly like is the amount of sugar used. Other recipes that I came across called for 7 to 9 cups of sugar. ALSO, I added a teaspoon of ground ginger to the recipe for excellent results. (BTW, I had to make this recipe about 5 or 6 times to use up that box of FFA pears.)
Made for Christmas presents this year. I don't even like jelly or jam and I was licking this out of the pot. I used Comice pears that I got on sale. This is super good!!
Great recipe! I add 1/2 vanilla bean pod finely chopped to make it into pear/vanilla perserves. Fantastic!!!
