Holiday Pear and Raspberry Jam


Servings: About 48 ounces

  • 6 Bartlett pears ripe, peeled, cored, and cut up
  • 16 oz of cups fresh raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons of orange liqueur
  • 1 3/4 ounce package powdered fruit pectin
  • 6 cups of sugar cups sugar


  1. Start sterilizing your jars in a stock pot full of water and bring to a boild while you are working the jam.
  2. Use a food processor (or mash by hand) your raspberries and place them in a large sauce pan. Do the same with the pears.
  3. Add the orange liqueur to the pan and pectin and mix
  4. Stir constantly while bringing mixture to a boil
  5. Add the sugar and bring mixture to a hard boil (where stirring doesn’t cause the boil to stop) and boil the mixture hard for 1 minute
  6. Turn off the heat and skim off the foam.
  7. When filling your cans work one at a time, leave 1/4 inch space between the top of the jam and the top of the jars, wipe the top of the jars with a clean damp towel to ensure a seal. Cover the jars with the lids and the rings, and return them to the boiling water, making sure the water covers the jars entirely. Process for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the jars from the pan, and let them cool to room temperature.
