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 !
