Pear Raspberry Jam Recipe

Pear Raspberry Jam Recipe

I give this sweet and tangy jam as a Christmas gift. In this part of the country, pears and raspberries are in plentiful supply, but frozen berries work just as well.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:48 servings


  • 2 cups coarsely chopped peeled ripe pears (about 2 medium)
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bottled lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel
  • 1 pouch (3 ounces) liquid fruit pectin


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine the first five ingredients; bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in pectin; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 2. Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: 6 half-pints.
Editor's Note: The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.

"Mine made more then 8 half pint jars. When I tasted the jam the orange zest over powered at first but then the raspberry pear came through. The next time I make this jam I will not use as much orange zest. Set up great."
