Pear Ginger Jam
















I've been making jam. Local pears from the tree of a friend of my parent's. I use the regular pear jam recipe from the Ball Canning Blue book and add 1/3 C of grated fresh ginger for every 4 C of pears. Process in water bath for 15 minutes. I've got a headstart on my holiday gifts! Its a bit spicy and delicious.

Now this, I've never tried. We like pears so much canned plain in sugar syrup that I ended up just doing all of ours that way. But my MiL loves ginger, so she would probably love this. Maybe next year . . .

Wow, this looks really yummy. I love pears and I love ginger, so I think I shall give it a try. I have that cookbook, so thank you for the idea! It will make great holiday gifts!
