Cook time: 45 minutes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Number of ingredients: 6
  • 3 pounds pears - peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • ½ cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Sugar: 19.8 g
How to cook:
  1. Mix chopped pears with sugar, crystallized ginger, lemon juice, fresh ginger, and lemon zest in a large heavy pot; let the mixture stand for 2 hours for pears to release their juice. Place the pot over medium-high heat, bring to a boil; cook, stirring often, until preserves are thick and fall off a metal spoon in sheets, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Pear pieces will be translucent and preserves will be darkened.
  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the pear preserves into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.
  3. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.
Notes: Pear Jam - Practical Self Reliance, Stir the mixture occasionally, watching for overflows, and cook for about 10-15 minutes. If pear pieces are too large, crush slightly with a potato masher (optional). 6. Cook until the pear jam …

Prep time: 30 minutes

Number of ingredients: 3
  • Pears
  • Sugar
  • Canning Jar/ Lids
How to cook:
  1. Peel all the pears.
  2. Shave chunks off the pears and put them into a bowl.
  3. The size of your chunks is dependant on preference on how big you like your preserves.
  4. I cut mine about the thickness of a quarter and size of ½ a french fry.
  5. I know, those are some strange directions. I'm just trying to help. Really, just shave the pears to your liking and make sure you don't get any skin or bad parts in the bowl.
  6. Add pears to a big pot. Layer with sugar. Repeat until you are out of pears.
  7. A good rule of thumb is to add 1½ cups sugar for every pound of pears.
  8. For example, if you had 6 lbs of pears, 9-10 cups of sugar would make them delicious.
  9. Sugar amount is also a preference. Do you like your preserves sweet? Or do you like them more natural fruity tasting? I prefer less sugar in mine, but eat them up just as fast when they are sweet.
  10. Turn the heat on low and bring to a boil. Turn heat down. Cook for several hours until the pears are translucent and the sauce is an amber brown color. Don't overcook them. It's better to undercook than overcook. The amount of time will depend on how big your pot is and how many pears are in your pot. I typically cook mine between 4-6 hours.
  11. Have canning jars ready, by placing them in boiling water. Use a funnel and spoon to put the cooked pears into the jar. Secure a canning lid. The heat from the pears and the hot jars will seal the jars.
  12. Attach a pretty note and then share them with a neighbor.
Notes: Old-fashioned Pear Preserves, Combine pears with sugar in a stainless steel pot, cover and let them rest/macerate over night. The juice will pull from the pears and in the morning …

Making fruit jam at home is easier than you think! These Pear Preserves are sweet, have a great texture, and only require 3 ingredients!
Provided by: Benilyn
Total time: 40 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Number of ingredients: 3
  • 4 pounds pears
  • 2 to 4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
How to cook:
  1. Peel, core and dice the pears into small pieces.
  2. Toss the pears in the sugar and lemon juice. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours. If you’re short on time, reduce this step to a minimum of 4 hours but no less.
  3. Prepare a water bath canner. Place the pear mixture into a heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil on high heat. Note that the mixture will foam, so choose a saucepan large enough to avoid spillage.
  4. Stir the mixture occasionally, and cook for about 10-15 minutes. If needed, slightly crush any large pieces of pear with a potato masher.
  5. When the preserves reach the gel stage, check the temperature with an instant-read thermometer. It should read 220°F at sea level and slightly below for higher elevations.
  6. Immediately remove the preserves from the heat and pack them into mason jars with a ¼-inch headspace. Seal with 2-part canning lids.
  7. Store the pear jam in the fridge for immediate use or process in a water bath canner for 5 minutes. Turn off the canner and allow the jars to sit for 5 minutes before removing them to a towel on the counter. Check for seals after a few hours and store any unsealed jars in the fridge.
Notes: Pear Preserves Recipe, Transfer to jars. 5. Using a ladle, pour the hot mixture into 7 x sterilized ½-pint jars, leaving ¼-inch space from the top of the jar. Remove air …
