5 Canning 101: Pear & Pineapple Jam

Pineapple Pear JamPantry 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?

It's foam.







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~




The result?

Beautiful, great tasting jam! Thanks, Rachelle!

Make some soon~
