This Fruit Was on Sale A-Pearantly

And I had ginger in the freezer, plenty of sugar, and some pectin, so things went pear shaped today.

Pear Ginger Jam

I also made a first attempt at creamed honey, but we won’t know how that works out for a week or two. Of course, I’m not sure you can actually ruin honey, short of cutting it with corn syrup as I’ve heard they do with some imported honey. So, if worse comes to worse, I’ll use it in my tea.

The pear jam is delicious though, if I do say so myself. 😊

    • Is there any way to make a low sugar version? I know they make special pectin for it but not sure how that works? I bet you could do something with pears and ginger – maybe bake one? Or would that still be too night?


      • I used to cook pears down and down till I get a sweet thick caramel-type consistency. It’s delicious, but it’s also full of sugar because the process just concentrates the natural fruit sugar. I think cooking them for jam will probably have a similar result. Fresh is best; the water and fibre in the fruit helps to lower the GI and sugar impact.
