Category: Fruit, Jams & Preserves

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Fresh or frozen cranberries,
  • About 1/2lb (250g)
  • 4 (or 5) ripe pears, about 2lb
  • 5 c Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1/4 c Sherry
  • 1 Box Certo Crystals Fruit
  • Pectin


Place cranberries in a food processor and whirl, using an on-and-off
motion, until coarsely ground. Turn into a large bowl. Peel, core and
finely chop pears. They should measure about 2 cups. (Do not chop in food
processor; they will turn to mush.) Add chopped pears to cranberries. Stir
in sugar until well mixed. Let stand for 10 minutes. Then, combine water,
sherry and fruit pectin crystals in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and
boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir into fruit mixture. Continue
stirring for 3 minutes. (There will be a few sugar crystals remaining.)
Immediately pour into jars. Cover at once with tight lids. Let stand at
room temperature until set. It may take up to 24 hours. Then, store in the
refrigerator or freezer. Jam will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3
weeks or in the freezer for several months. Makes 6 1/2 cups.
