Pears Jam - The recipe

Our new pears jam has a wonderful and special taste and color.
The jam requires a little advance preparation and is special, (very) sweet and reddish in color.

On my last visit to the neighborhood greengrocer I bought 1.5 kilo giant yellowish green pears with some red cheeks. 
Pears for jam making have to be firm and hard, then the pectin content will be higher than a fruit at its peak ripeness, also at the same time we'll strengthen the jam with pectin that we'll make from the pears seeds and skins.
Peel the pears, keep the skins and put them in a pot.
Now cut the pears, and remove the pits and the cores, also put them in the same pot.
Let's cook everything (without the pears) with lemon peel together for a few minutes, filter the liquids and keep them for cooking the jam.
Boil the cooking liquids with the chopped pears and lemon juice in a pot until the fruit softens.
Add the sugar and mix. 
Cook the jam until it gets a reddish and passes the plate test, the cooking time will be about an 1 hour.
