December is here, so it is time to plan the Holiday menus, gifts and bake cookies. I am not yet done with my plans, but almost. I am going to bake some Swiss cookies among the meanwhile classic ones, like the honey cookies, Lebkuchen and Beigli. Now I would like to share a recipe for a pear-chocolate jam, that could also make a delicious gift.
1200 g ripe pear (e.g. Williams)
750 g sugar
juice of 1 orange
50 ml lemon juice
250 g dark chocolate (60% cocoa)
Peel and dice pears and bring it to boil among the lemon and orange juice. Set it aside and stir in chopped chocolate, mix well until melted. Let it cool and leave it in the fridge over night. The next day bring to cook and as soon as it reached 105°C fill in jars and let them cool covered by a blanket over night.
