The "Shit I have 3 pears and 1 peach that are about to go bad" jam.

Peach Pear Jam (more pear than peach)

  • 3 large pears
  • 1 large peach
  • 1/2 cup fruit juice or water
  • 3 1/2 tbsp BOTTLED lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 tbsp Ball low sugar pectin
  • 1/3 cup sugar, or sweetener of choice
  1. Peel, core, and chop fruit into large chunks. Combine with lemon juice and water/fruit juice in a medium sized pot. If your fruit is soft enough, mash with a potato masher or blend to chunky with an immersion blender now. If it's still hard, cook for a bit until the fruit can be mashed or pulverized. Gradually stir in pectin, no clumping!

  2. While constantly stirring, bring fruit to a rolling boil that cannot be stirred down.

  3.  Add sweetener now if desired. Bring back to a boil and boil hard for 1 minute.

  4. Pack into hot, sterilized jars, process for 10 min. Let sit for 12-24 hours before moving the jars. Put any jars that didn't seal in the fridge and eat within a week. Makes three 8 oz jars of jam.
