* 3-1/2 cups pear puree
* 1-1/2 cups sugar
* 1 package freezer jam pectin
* 1/3 cup water or apple juice


1. Peel and slice the pears. Then, puree in a blender or food processor.

2. Stir the sugar and pectin together in a bowl.

3. Add the pear puree and water (or juice). Stir for 3 minutes.

4. Ladle the jam into clean freezer jars. Twist on the lids; then, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or until thickened. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks, or freeze for up to a year.

Makes enough for 5 half-pint freezer jars.
