Since I gave you some new bread recipes last week, I figured you’d need something to put on your bread. This recipe is one that my Mom submitted, but since she has, I’ve made it myself, and it is so delicious! It can be as chunky as you’d like, and has a great citrus flavour to it, but it’s not as strong as store bought marmalade. It is also not as sweet as regular jam either.
My Mom freezes her marmalade, but I canned mine, and it worked fine. It tastes great in the morning on top of some toasted Flax Bread. Mmm…

- 3 oranges
- 10 1/2 cups pears, cut up(not peeled)
- 1 can (14 oz) crushed pineapple
- 7-8 cups sugar(approximately)
Squeeze juice from oranges. Remove pits and put oranges through food chopper (I used blender).
Core and dice pears.
Combine and measure fruit. Add 2/3 cup sugar for each 1 cup of fruit.
In a heavy bottom dutch oven, cook about one hour or until thickened. Stir occasionally.
Cool and stir occasionally to mix fruit throughout.
Pour into jars and seal with wax or hot water bath.

I agree with Betty, that would be good just straight from the bowl!
So many delicious new recipes, Jeanine! Yum!
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving celebration — and what great news about your Mom!
I just whipped up some cranberry salsa for Fall Favorites Friday … just in case that’s something you’d like to try.
Have a wonderful weekend! It promises to be a cold one here in Maine…
That looks wonderful and I am going to try it. When I saw the title, I thought of the pear jam that Mom and now I make. It is pear jam with shreds of lemon peel in it. The recipe is in the powdered pectin box. I think it is sure jel.
Thanks for the recipe

I wanted to thank you for posting your baking recipes… As you say…they are beauties… All best..
Yes, on ice cream, or pound cake, or ice cream. Pears have such a delicate flavor, this would be wonderful.
Oh my. I bought pears and pineapple over the weekend, before stumbling onto your recipe; I think it’s an omen.
I love the color and the flavor has to match its look.
That looks really tasty… I love making jams and marmalade. It elevates any slice of bread to a little piece of heaven.
