2 lbs pears, peeled + chopped (I used D’Anjou)
3/4 C sugar
2 Meyer lemons, zested + juiced
1 T Limoncello
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 t ground nutmeg
3 sprigs rosemary
1. Add the peeled, chopped pears, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, Limoncello, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and rosemary sprigs to a saucepan. I also love to scrape in some of the lemon pulp.
2. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally and mashing the fruit, for 1 - 2 hours or until you’ve reached desired consistency. Remove from heat and discard the cinnamon sticks and rosemary sprigs.
3. Transfer the jam to pint-size jar and close the jar. Allow the jam to cool to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
