Tinned fruit is a convenient source of fruity goodness to go with your brekkie oats. It’s the only pear that’s bruise free when you go weekend camping! Once you’ve eaten the pears, there’s a lot of leftover liquid. Rather than throwing the juices away, here’s how you can make this simple leftover pear syrup jelly – a winner treat.
What works for me:-
For 1 cup of pear syrup, add 2 teaspoons of powdered gelatine.
Stir over a gentle heat until the powdered gelatine is dissolved.
Pour into a shallow dish.
Pop in the fridge for a few hours until set.
I was introduced to this wonderful use of leftovers by my sister, Tara. She started making this jelly for her sons who are on the Failsafe “diet”. Pear jelly is one of a few sweety treaties that her kids can enjoy. For our family who have no dietary restrictions, this has become a staple leftover favourite.
Look for tinned pears in pear syrup, as leftover pear juice is not so yummy. I hope you love the simplicity of this leftover recipe. Enjoy the divine, gentle taste. You’ll wonder why you ever bought packet jelly!
