    dianegrapegrower's Note:

    Gingery, with hints of lemon and orange, this jam is delightful on biscuits or scones. I like to use a variety of pears when making this jam, to give it more texture, while preserving the sweetness. The larger amount of ginger makes a very gingery jam, while the lesser amount (of course) is milder.

    My Private Note



    1/2 pints

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare 1/2 pint jars, lids, and water bath canner. Place a small plate in the freezer to chill.
    2. 2
      After chopping, puree roughly half the pears in a food processor until smooth. Alternatively, you may grate all the pears. Or you may use an immersion blender in the pot when half cooked. The goal is to have a jam with a smooth pulpy texture, punctuated by small chunks of fruit. Without the smooth, pulpy pears, the taste is more like pears in ginger sauce.
    3. 3
      Add all ingredients to a 5-6 quart dutch oven. Stir to combine, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until thickened, stirring occaisionally. (20-30 minutes, depending on how juicy the fruit is).
    4. 4
      Test thickness of jam by putting a small spoonful on a chilled plate, and tilting. If the jam remains mounded and doesn't drip, it's done.
    5. 5
      Fill jars, leaving a 1/4" headspace, cap, and process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
