    About this recipe: Years ago, when I complained my pear jam was bland, an aunt suggested that I add plum pulp to my next batch. I did...and then I won the grand prize in a recipe contest with the thick tasty results!

    Serves: 48 

    • 500g chopped or coarsely ground peeled pears
    • 250g chopped or coarsely ground peeled plums
    • 1 (13g) sachet pectin
    • 1kg sugar

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a large saucepan, combine pears and plums. Stir in pectin. Bring to full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to the boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Pour into jars or freezer containers and cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Cover and let stand overnight or until set, but no longer than 24 hours. Refrigerate or freeze.
