I just made the Strawberry Bananna Jam off the Bernardian website and it turned out great!  It won’t let me copy and paste the recipie but it’s on their website. 

It was a freezer jam, but I just used regular Pectin instead.

@techie: I made a holiday pear jam last year (2 years ago? yikes) that was awesome. It was out of the Blue Book (done by the Bell jar company). I ended up using half the sugar recommended (it just seemed like SO MUCH) and got more of a syrup than a jam – I THINK because the sugar to pectin ratio was off. So I would either go with low or no sugar added pectin and use half the sugar or go ahead knowing you’re making pear syrup. Of course you can use all the sugar too, it’s personal preference. It was definitely sweet with 1/2. Great on pancakes, waffles, ice cream, etc – big pear taste and holiday spices.

1 quart finely chopped pears

7 1/2 cups sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 pouch liquid pectin

1 tsp whole cloves

1/2 tsp whole allspice

1 cinnamon stick

Combine fruit, sugar, and lemon juice in a large saucepot. Tie spices in a spice bag and add to pot. Bring slowly to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Stir in liquid pectin. Return to a rolling boil. boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Take spice bag out. Ladle hot jam into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Process 10 min in boiling water canner. Yields about 8 half pints.

Let me know if you have any questions – Fiance and I do a LOT of preserving and putting food up!

@techie I highly recommend making the boozy fruit next summer. It’s sooo good. I have 5 quarts of cherry brandy. Each cherry is like a shot!
