Blushing Pear-Plum Jam

This inspiration came from Lynn over at Happier than a Pig in Mud who is a big fan of small-batch canning.  When I saw her post this morning, she gave me the inspiration to use up 4 plums and one pear to make 3 blushing jars of Pear-Plum jam.

4 plums chopped w/skin
1 pear, peeled and grated
2/3 cup water
2 Tbsp. pectin
1/2 cup sugar

Combine plums, pear, water and pectin in a medium saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes.  Add sugar and boil hard for one minute.  Pour into pint jars.  You can process these, but I'm giving them as gifts.  Thanks Lynn!  Happy Canning!
