Carrot Cake Jam
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Process: 5 min.
This is one of the first recipes I tried to make as a novice. It turned out so delicious and I got complaints from friends and family that I sent small jars! Making it again for my Christmas gifts! Thanks so much!
Our girls were having an afternoon nap so hubby helped me make a batch of this jam. It was easy to follow the recipe, we made it exactly as directed. Next time I would dice up the pears much finer, maybe even grate it. I tested it this morning on a cinnamon raisin bagel, it is very tasty. Very sweet though with a spicy warm after taste. I will try it later this week on warm brie, I bet it will be fantastic. The little jars will make great gifts for people!
I made this last year and we loved it. I did use pears for one recipe and apples for the other recipe I made. I preferred the apple better, but they were both excellent.

Huge hit! Looking for more ways to use this! I did use a bit less sugar and I added a nice pinch of salt. Will make again so I have plenty on hand for gifts!
This was fabulous..I use it on rye bread with cream cheese or over ice cream..YUMMY..
Has anyone tried using apples instead of pears in this recipe?
I made this exactly as directed and it is waaaaay too sweet. I would definitely suggest you experiment with less sugar.
Not sure about freezer canning part, however you can remove air bubbles by using a bubble remover, which you can find here. http://www.amazon.com/Ball-Bubble-Remover-Head-Space/dp/B00CAXLIF6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384715320&sr=8-1&keywords=canning+bubble+remover Although if your like me, I like to save money. So I bought the whole set which you can find here: http://www.amazon.com/Presto-09995-Function-Canning-Kit/dp/B001V9K8A6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1384715320&sr=8-4&keywords=canning+bubble+remover Either way, all you do is when you pour your jam, jelly, etc. into the jar, you take the bubble remover and just gently slide it around the inside wall of the jar between the jelly and the jar. This helps create a seal and reduces the chance of the seal breaking at a later time. Hope this helps.
