How to make it

  • Put a small plate in your freezer.
  • Pour the lemon juice in a bowl.
  • Peel and core the pears. Dice them and mix the pieces in the bowl with the lemon juice.
  • In a large saucepan mix the pears and sugar and bring to a boil under medium-high heat. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally and foaming if necessary.
  • To check if it is set, pour a little jam on your cold plate. Wait for a few second and see if it doesn’t run, it is set, otherwise, keep on cooking and try again a few minutes later.
  • Stir the chocolate into the jam, wait for a simmer then turn the heat off.
  • Put in jars and cover (or can following National Center for Home Food Preservation recommendations).
