Fig and Pear Jam


Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

1. Combine all ingredients, except sugar, in a 4-qt. stainless steel or enameled Dutch oven. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, over high heat, stirring constantly.

2. Add sugar, stirring to dissolve. Return mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam, if necessary.

3. Ladle hot jam into a hot jar, leaving 1⁄4-inch headspace. Wipe jar rim. Center lid on jar. Apply band, and adjust to fingertip-tight. Place jar in boiling-water canner. Repeat until all jars are filled.

4. Process jars 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat; remove lid, and let jars stand 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool.


* Serve on crostini with a nice hard cheese, such as Manchego, and fresh thyme leaves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suggest adding ginger Just made this with freshly picked figs and pears, followed the recipe. Result is tasty, also quite thick and very sweet. Notes for next time: reduce sugar by 1/2 cup, use 3 T pectin, and add a tablespoon or 2 of finely chopped fresh ginger.
