Very Special Pear Marmalade

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Canning

 Ingredients List

  • 4 lb Hard unripe pears
  • Peel/cored
  • Cut into small even dice
  • 5 1/2 c Sugar
  • Juice of 3 lemons
  • 8 oz Preserved ginger in syrup


1- Put pears in a heavy stainless steel or enamel pan - the heavier the
better. Add sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and stir until the
sugar has dissolved, about 5 min.
2 - Dice the pieces of preserved ginger to match the pear pieces as nearly
as you can. Add the syrup and the ginger to the pears.
3 - Simmer until the pears become transparent and turn the color of the
ginger, 20-25 min. Do not take the marmalade higher than 220 degrees on
the candy thermometer; it will thicken more as it cools.
4 - Spoon into sterilized jars or small jars. Cool, refrig- erate. Or
spoon into freezer jars leaving 1" space. Cool and freeze. Makes 3 pints.
The pears and ginger don't have to be precise, but it does look prettier.
Select hard pears such as Kieffer or Seckel.
