This particular Perfect Pear Jam recipe takes a little bit of time investment but worth all the wait! I suggest leaving the pear mixture to soak in all the goodness from the sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest, before boiling it to make your homemade jam. This can take a couple hours, but definitely enhances all the flavor. Refrigerate, freeze or process and store in a dry, cool place. 

To make Perfect Pear Jam, you will need the following ingredients:

Boil pear mixture

Transfer rested pears to a heavy-bottomed, non-reactive pan and over medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, preventing any sticking to the base of the pan and reducing foam accumulation.

Once soft, mash the pear chunks with a potato masher. For a completely smooth jam, mash completely.
