After a bumper harvest from our pear tree, we decided to make some Home Made Pear Jam from a few of the pears. First time making jam, first time using our own Pears!
I found a home made pear jam recipie online –
- 4 cups mashed pears
- 7. 5 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1tsp ground cinnamon
- 1tsp ground cumin
- 1tsp allspice
the recipie said to mash the pears – the masher was never going to work (the pears had been ripening for 2 weeks, but could have done with another) so we used the hand blender to pulp them instead.
