Ingredients for Pear Jam
If you want your dessert to have only a pear aroma, you only need pears and sugar to make it. But if you plan to endow the pear jam with lemon flavor, you need, besides the main products, to stock up on lemons too. So, the proportions for jam are 1: 1: 1.

The formula is simple, but the secret to the success of pear jam made from whole fruits is the patience of the hostess and the sequence of operations.So, pierced pears are waiting for their time while we are preparing the syrup. To do this, 1 kg of sugar you need to add 150 grams of water and boil on low heat until completely dissolved, then pour the pierced fruit with hot syrup, and then leave for a day.After 24 hours, you need to drain the syrup, boil it and refill the pears. This operation is required to perform until the fruit becomes almost transparent, honey-colored, but remain intact. You may need to prepare such pear jam not for one or two days, but a week. But believe me, the result is worth it! Before you roll the jam into jars, boil it with the pears over a very slow fire, then cork it under the metal lids. Pear jam is obtained very beautiful and tasty, and drinking tea with a whole transparent amber pear is a pleasure! If you want to change the flavor of the jam and make it sour, at the final stage add the sliced lemon slices.
