Easy Carrot Cake Jam Recipe: Sweet Carrots, Pears, Pineapple, Oh, My

My grandma always made homemade jelly, jam and fruit preserves. From strawberry to fig to pear, we were always being sent home with a sweet jar of goodness from grandma. Because of this, I'm always on the lookout for different jam recipes, like this carrot cake jam.

Carrot cake jam? If you're a carrot cake fan like me (try my amazing carrot cake recipe), then you're probably on your way to the store now to buy that box of fruit pectin. (Don't forget your keys!)

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: Makes 6 8-ounce jars


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the pineapple with juice, carrots, pears, lemon juice, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in a large pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until pears are tender, about 20 minutes. 
  2. Add the pectin and bring to a boil. Add the sugar and bring back to a full, rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, then turn off the heat. Use a large spoon to skim off any foam from the top. 
  3. Carefully spoon the jam into sterilized jars. Process the jars in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes, if desired.

How delicious! My grandma always made her own jellies and I've always wanted to, but never had the time. This is on my list!
Interesting idea I wouldn’t have thought of. 😋
