Pear and Ginger Marmalade
Method

This delicious preserve is somewhere between a spoon sweet and a marmalade. Goes perfectly with your yogurt!

  • Peel the pears and remove the seeds and core. Do not discard the peels and seeds. Set them aside.
  • Use a mandolin, peeler or sharp knife to cut the pears into thin slices.
  • Grate the ginger on a cheese grater, using the thin blades, into a bowl. Reserve the juice.
  • Combine the pear, ginger, lemon juice and sugar in a plastic bowl. Refrigerate for 12 hours, allowing them to releaser their juices and all of the flavors to blend.
  • Place the reserved seeds and peels in a cheesecloth or tulle. Wrap them in it and tie securely with some kitchen twine. Place them in a medium sized pot.
  • After 12 hours, remove the bowl and transfer mixture to the pot. Place over medium heat and remove the froth which may develop at first.
  • It will take about 30-40 minutes for the marmalade to thicken.
  • Check if it has thickened enough. Remove the packet of seeds and peels and discard.
  • Divide mixture into sterilized jars.

 

 

Tip
The seeds and peel of the pear are rich in pectin, which helps the marmalade thicken quicker and in a completely natural way. To learn how to sterilize your jars and thicken your marmalade or jam, click here
