Random extra fruit inspired this jam. About 2 pounds pears, a handful of blackberries. I also had a bottle of Chambord on the shelf. Delicious. This would be great in a tart or wrapped up in a bit of pastry.
2 pounds pears
Handful of blackberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup Chambord (raspberry liquor)
Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes or so, until fruit is soft and jam is thickened. Add Chambord and simmer 5 minutes longer. Can and store one year.
