This Quick Aromatic Pear Jam May Become Your New Breakfast Food

To begin with, gather your pears

We recommend you use about 6 medium-sized pears, but you can use any type of pear you have at home.

First, make sure you dice them small enough so that they disintegrate easily. While there is no right size, the smaller they are, the easier to handle.

By the way, if you don’t have enough pears, you can certainly add apples to the mix. The flavor will be more citrus-infused, but equally as tasty.

Now, you’re ready to gather the rest of the ingredients

The rest of the ingredients in this jam are key, as they allow the fruit to become a gel-like consistency and also add flavor.

For starters, gather your sugar and combine it with the diced fruit. Then, add the lemon juice.

If you don’t have lemon juice, try lime juice, white vinegar, or citric acid.

Now, it’s time for the spice. The recipe suggests you use cloves, but you can use other spices if you don’t have any, or dislike the taste.

Some good replacement ideas include cinnamon, nutmeg, and even allspice.

Finally, bring out your hot jar

Now check out this in-depth step-by-step guide on how to safely set your jam into jars and keep them for much longer.

That’s it! You now have a delicious jam that is different. Enjoy it at breakfast or during the day for a treat.
