Pantry Eats posted a recipe that intrigued me.
Pear & Pineapple Jam.
Sounded like a winning combination...
My neighbor gave me some Barlett pears from her bumper crop tree.
For this recipe, all I needed was about 5 of these large pears.
After peeling the pear, I used a melon baller to get the seeds out.
Then I used a paring knife to cut the stem and the blossom end off.
Ta da~ This pear is ready...
I cut them up in chunks and measured out 4 cups.
I measured out 10 oz. of canned crushed pineapple.
The recipe called for mashing them, but I do not have a potato masher.
I blended it in my food processor instead.
For this recipe, you will need 1 package of pectin.
This is from my first batch in my stainless steel stock pot.
I recommend a heavy bottomed pot...
AND stirring it constantly...(which I didn't do)
See that white stuff on top?
Just scrape it off and put it in a separate container.
It's okay to eat it.
You scrape off the foam to make your jam look pretty~
Beautiful, great tasting jam! Thanks, Rachelle!
Make some soon~
