Spiced Pear Jam

Spiced Pear Jam Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chopped or coarsely ground peeled pears (about 5-1/2 pounds)
  • 4 cups sugar (white or brown)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 

Preparation:

  • Combine all ingredients in a Dutch oven. Simmer, uncovered, for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until thick, stirring occasionally. Stir more frequently as the mixture thickens.
  • Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in head space. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: 6 half-pints.
