Spiced Pear Jam

Yesterday morning I spotted three soft green Anjou pears in the fruit basket that were desperately seeking my attention. One had browned in parts and the others were threatening to take that route. after a week of birthday cakes, no one in the house was in the mood for another cake... so a preserve was in order. Soon after the boys left, I googled for a recipe of pear jam, one that did not require pectin. This one popped up and minutes later a big pan was set to simmer with all the listed ingredients and a few more... Two hours later I was rewarded with two jars of DELICIOUS jam. Husband loved it and I did too... and ever since I have been wondering why we have never bought a jar of pear jam. Its so darn delicious ! 

Spiced Pear Jam
Adapted from Taste of Home
  Preparation Time : 5 minutes                          Cooking Time: 2 hours 15-30 minutes                        Yield : 22 oz                 

  • 4 cups of chopped Green Anjou Pears ( I chopped 3 pears, did not peel them. just removed the bruised and damaged parts) 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 sticks of clove
  • 11/2 tbsp lime juice
  • zest and pulp from 1/4 of a juicy orange
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large enough preferably non-stick container. Simmer, uncovered for 2 hours to 2 hour 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir more frequently as the mixture thickens. 
  2. Once the mixture has attained the desired consistency, switch off the heat and ladle the mixture into sterilized jars.

  11. Ohh this jam looks fantastic. I actually just made pear jam and I spiced it with saffron, here's the post if you want to check it out :) http://happyxbelly.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/pear-and-saffron-jam.html

  12. Looks so lovely I just wish I loved cloves. Do you think I could leave them out or substitute with something else? Maybe add a little more cinnamon? I'd love to try this recipe sometime.

    1. Try adding a bay leaf instead of the cloves. I usually do that when i run out of cloves. Hope that helps


Thanks for stopping by. It was nice having you here. Have a good day.

Take care and come back soon.
Best, Tanusree
