Cranberry-Pear Freezer Jam

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine pears, cranberries, and honey. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened* (mixture will thicken more as it cools); stir mixture occasionally while cooking and use a wooden spoon to gently crush the cranberries against the side of the saucepan.
  2. Stir remaining ingredients into pear mixture. Remove saucepan from heat; cool about 2 hours or until room temperature.
  3. Ladle jam into clean half-pint freezer containers, leaving a 1/2-inch headspace. Seal and label. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours before storing. Store in the freezer up to 1 year or in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

*Tip

To check if your jam is cooked enough, remove saucepan from heat. Place a teaspoon of the jam on a small baking sheet or plate. Place in the freezer for a minute or two. The jam should be slightly set with no free juices running from it.
