"This has been my favorite jam since I was a little girl. We moved around a lot when I was young; my Grandmother would send this jam to us so that we still felt we were close to 'Grandma's house.' I love it on warm homemade bread or peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Enjoy!"

  • Ready In

  1. Mix pears, fruit pectin, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, and lemon juice in a large heavy pot; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add sugar all at once, stirring, and bring back to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute. Mix in butter to settle foam.
  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack the pear jam 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.

So easy to make, all my cans sealed! I did reduce the sugar to 3 cups. Once I tasted it with the 3 cups in it, I didn't need it any sweeter. I also reduced the spices in half, per one of the rec...

I made two batches of this recipe. I only used four cups of sugar and suited my sweet tooth just fine! This recipe reminds me of Apple butter. On the second batch I used only four cups of suga...

This recipe turned out great! I used low sugar pectin and only added 2 cups of sugar and it is still plenty sweet.

good but all I could taste was lemon juice. hopefully when it cools and sets, it won't be as strong.

I only changed the amount of sugar to 4 cups per other's suggestions. It turned out wonderful! I used starkrimson pears which is why my pears are more red compared to other photos.

I made this, and it tasted delicious!

My family couldn't get enough of this! very easy to make and I just loved the smell while cooking
