Honey Pear Apple Jam (my own invention)
Was thinking the taste of honey went really well with pears and I had some left so I made this jam.
6 Bartlett pears pealed and cored, then chopped
3 large sour apples (about 4 cups)
1 lemon, juiced with pulp
1 cup honey
4 cups sugar
1 envelope liquid pectin
In a 2 qt sauce pan place the apple and pears in 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil and then on low boil cook for 15 minutes add the lemon, honey, and sugar. Bring back to boil and then on low boil cook about 25 minutes add the pectin and cook for 2 minutes after it boils.
Remember to do all the essentials for boiling water bath as well as properly handling your jars.
Boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
