Asian Pear Jam

Asian Pear Jam

You don't see Asian pear jam in stores right?
I tried making some, and it turned out pretty delicious!

Ingredients

Asian pear (peeled)
1 kg
Sugar
100 g
Lemon
1

Steps

1. Peel the pear and the lemon and cut into chunks.
2. Cover Step 1 with sugar and leave to sit for 30 minutes until the moisture is released from the fruit. Quite a lot will draw out.
3. Turn on the heat and simmer while occasionally stirring to prevent burning until the volume lessens to 1/3.
4. You can leave the pears in chunks or whiz them in a blender!
5. I kept the pears chunky and the jam thick. Store the unused portion in an airtight jar.
6. Since I wanted to try out the jam, I topped it over pancakes.
7. The jam is slightly sweet with the taste of real fruit. You can probably use one whole jar in 2-3 occasions if topping it on pancakes.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was given a lot of Asian pears, so I made this jam.
