Spiced Pear Jam
Total TimePrep: 1 hour 40 min. Process: 10 min.
Great recipe! I highly recommend substituting brown sugar for part of the regular sugar, adding nutmeg, and I even got a little crazy and used maple syrup instead of some of the regular sugar. It’s definitely a must try recipe!
Does anyone have trouble growing pears with tiny hard bits (I think they are calcium)? They are a little unnerving to crunch on and I don't know how to get rid of them.
So you don't have to add any lemon juice then ?

I was so very hopeful.I love brown sugar so I went with one person's recommendation to sub half of the white sugar. I think the brown sugar was too over whelming for delicate pear flavor. Maybe only sub the one cup as another person had mentioned.Even without that it was way too sweet for me. Couldn't even finish the sample spoon that I was tasting with before putting in jars. I added in a pint of tart wild plum juice that I had frozen up last year, and about 3 tablespoons of lemon. Still too sweet but at least tolerable.
Found this recipe when looking for a jam to make out of some pears my neighbor gave me. It is delicious, the cinnamon and allspice gave it great flavor!
which type of pear is the best for this recipe?
I made this and gave it to family and friends! Great use of our over abundance of pears! This recipes a keeper!
I made this jam for Christmas presents saving a jar for myself, thank goodness I did, it is really good. I also did the brown and white sugar togetherness (1/2 and 1/2) and 1/4 tsp nutmeg like others suggested. I never processed for 10 minutes in boiling water they sealed just fine. It is excellent on pork chops and as a glaze on ham and of course on warm rolls and toast. Defiantly a keeper Thx Karen
