Pear jam

We have decided to make our own jams with bulk fruits whenever possible. We pick a fruit available in Costco solely for this purpose. Sometime back, I made pear jam and wanted to share the recipe- 

6 pears, cored and chopped
4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground clove

I steamed the pears with cloves for 5 mins in the Instant pot. Once the pressure released, I added sugar and  hit saute. I allowed the jam to thicken for sometime. It took about 30-40 mins before it was the consistency I needed. I felt the sugar was a bit less and just right for us. I did not can it. I stored in a steel jar in the fridge for upto 2 weeks.
