What, if your pears are solid, then later 5 minutesas soon as they are all covered with butter, you can pour into the pan 3-4 tablespoons hot boiled water.
When the pears are completely boiled, remove the pan with them from the heat, and then chop the fruit in oil with a blender. In this case, you must be very careful, since the hot mass can accidentally spit in you and burn.
The resulting mashed pears are returned to a slow fire, add sugar, mix well and cook for another 40-60 minutes or until completely thickened. The excess liquid should evaporate, and the pear jam itself should become so thick that the spoon leaves traces on it that would not disappear for a while. Well, simply, if you scoop up jam with a spoon, it keeps well on it, not spilling out.
