An exiting way to preserve pears found on frukt.no
A yummy and slightly different marmalade with pear, saffron and chili. The marmalade goes great with fried meat and it makes a delicious sandwich spread.

½ g [0,02 oz] saffron
3 dl [0,6 pt] Lyle’s Golden Syrup or similar
1 piece of red chili
4 dl [0,8 pt] preserving sugar
 Peel the pears. Cut them in halves and remove the cores. Cut the halves into thin slices and put them in a saucepan with saffron and golden syrup. Leave the boil under cover for 5-10 minutes.
 Rinse and clean the chili and cut it two lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes, then cut it into very small pieces very small pieces.
 Put the chilli and preserving sugar into the saucepan and cook for 2 more minutes.
 Pour the marmalade into hot and clean glasses and when cooled store them cold.
