A successful combination!
Do pear, apple and ginger fit together? We say: YES, even excellent! This jam conjures up a delicious combination on your breakfast table. Here's how it works::
(for approx. 2 x 100 ml mason jars)
500 g Harrow Sweet[S] pears
10 g ginger
25 ml natural, a bit sour apple juice
15 ml lemon juice
125 g gelling sugar(2:1)
PREPARATION Step 1:
Rinse the glasses thoroughly with the lids and boil them in the water bath for about 10 minutes to sterilize. Place a small plate in the freezer.
PREPARATION Step 2:
Peel the pears, remove the kernel and cut the pears into small, thin and fine slices with a knife. Peel the ginger and rub very finely.
Put the pear pieces, ginger, both juices and gelling sugar in a saucepan, bring to the boil and cook for about 4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Then make the gelling control: take the small plate out of the freezer and add some jam on it, if it becomes firm, the gelling control was successful and the jam is ready. If it is still liquid, then let the jam cook a little longer and repeat the gelling control. Then fill in the prepared glasses.
Turn the glasses upside down and leave to cool for a few minutes, then turn over and leave to cool completely.
Use fully ripe pears of the variety Harrow Sweet[S] and a natural, slightly sour direct apple juice for the recipe.
Have fun cooking this fruity delight!
