Aromatic pear jam will delight you in the cold season and remind you of summer. The jam is moderately sweet, the rich pear flavor and juiciness remain. Pear slices can be added to various desserts.
We choose ripe, but firm pears. Leave the soft pears for the jam. My pear is very sweet, so 500 grams of sugar is enough, if the pear is sour, you can change the proportions and add more sugar. The jam should not boil actively so that the slices remain intact.

How to cook "Pear Slices Jam for the Winter"
Let's prepare the ingredients. Pour sugar into a saucepan, add water and citric acid. We put on low heat and heat, stirring occasionally. Cut the pears into slices. Remove the core. The sugar has warmed up and dissolved. Put the pear slices in hot sugar syrup. Bring the pear in syrup to a boil. Do not stir and turn off the heat. We leave for 20-30 minutes. Next, cook over low heat for about 20 minutes. Boiling is minimal, the cooking should not boil violently. Put the finished pear jam in sterile jars and roll it up. You can cook for 20-40 minutes. The cooking time depends on the density of the pear, the harder the pear, the longer it can be cooked. The color of the jam depends on the cooking duration. The longer you cook, the darker the jam becomes.
