This Pear and Spice Jelly is the perfect accompaniment to any festive foie gras. The combination of sweet pears with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg make this a delicious, indulgent treat that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
To make it, you will need:
- 4 pears, peeled and cored
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Begin by placing the pears in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until they are soft and beginning to break down, about 8-10 minutes. Add the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before transferring to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl and press through with a spoon or rubber spatula.
Pour the jelly into sterilized jars and seal tightly. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
