Carrot Cake Jam with canned pears?
Hi all - I know I once said what's the point of canning grocery store produce or already-canned items, but I've got a lot of crushed pineapple to use (opened it to make Hawaiian Chicken). I've also got 2lb of carrots. I figured I'd use up the pint of pineapple and a bag of carrots making carrot cake muffins for Scout Sunday at church tomorrow, just pulled out my recipe and it doesn't use pineapple! Found another one that only uses 1/2C.
So I figured I'd make Carrot Cake Jam while I'm at it - but I don't have any pears! Can I use canned pears in light syrup? This pineapple has been sitting (opened, poured into mason jar) in my fridge all week, the carrots even longer, I'd like to use them up!
