The story about the red apple and the green pear

Apple and Pear jam

This is a story about a pretty green pear and a lovely red apple that fell in love a pan. With some sugar, cinnamon and lime they ended up as a delicious Apple and Pear jam… Mmm…


    Apple and Pear jam
    1 small jar

    1 apple and 1 pear (a total of 200 gr rinsed and peeled fruit)
    200 gr jam sugar (contains sugar, lemon acid, apple pectin and Sodium benzoate)
    3 tsp lime juice
    1 tbsp brown sugar
    0.5 tsp cinnamon
    100 ml water

    Start with putting a small plate in the freezer. Rinse, peel and chop the fruit. Put the fruit, water and sugar in a pan and boil rapidly. Boil until the setting point is reached, about 15 minutes. To see if the jam is ready, take out the plate from the freezer and put a spoonful of jam on it. If the jam doesn’t set just continue with the cooking. Pour the jam into a clean jar when ready.

    this sounds amazing! i’ll have to give it a try, though im not sure where i would find jam sugar…hopefully a pectin/sugar combo will work.
