Red face ISO Harlequin Marmelade

Has anyone seen or heard of Harlequin Marmelade? I'm looking for the recipe. My sister and I used to make it. If I remember correctly it had orange, pineapple, walnuts and perhaps apricot. It believe it was in a book about canning that had a jam/jelly section. It was absolutely delicious. Internet/library searches have come up with nothing, nothing, nothing.

As my sister passed away, and we couldn't locate the book among her things, I'm stuck!

If anyone can provide a clue, I would be most grateful (/and Excited)!

Could it be this?

Bartlett Harlequin Jam

1-1/2 pounds NW Bartlett Pears
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 package (2 oz.) powdered fruit pectin
5-1/2 cups sugar
1 jar (8 oz.) red maraschino cherries, drained and chopped


Pare, core and finely chop pears. Measure 2 cups fruit into heavy kettle; add pineapple and lemon juice. Add pectin; stir well. Bring to boil; stir constantly. Add sugar; mix well. Cook and stir over high heat until mixture comes to full rolling boil. Boil 4 minutes. Remove from heat and skim. Carefully stir in cherries. Ladle into clean, hot 1/2-pint canning jars to within 1/8-inch of tops. Seal according to jar manufacturer's directions. Place jars on rack in canner. Process 5 minutes in boiling water bath with boiling water 2 inches above jar tops. Remove jars from canner. Cool away from drafts. Remove rings from sealed jars after 12 hours.

Thanks so much, but it was definitely a marmalade with orange peel, sugar and water. But I printed this recipe out because it sounds wonderful when my pear tree gives up its fruit this summer!

I think this might be close to what you are looking for.

Pears Harlequin

3 lbs Pears, under ripe
1 can Pineapple, crushed
1 Orange, grated with rind
4 oz Maraschino cherries
3 c Sugar (use this amount to every 4 cups of fruit mix)

1.Wipe, stem, peal and core pears. Cut in small pieces.
2.Mix pears, pineapple and orange (juice and rind) together. Measure.
3.For each 4 cups fruit mix, add 3 cups sugar. Cover and let stand overnight.
4.The next day, simmer until thick (about 2 hours). Add cherries, cutting them in half. Stir well. Place in jars refrigerate. Can be processed for more long term storage.
Be determined to live life with flair and laughter!

Kelly - this sounds like a recipe I read in the old Kerr canning recipe book .... but it wasn't called a marmalade, think it was a compote or something like that. But, the ingredients sound about right.

I'll look and see if I can't find it ... it's not on the shelf so my DIL might have borrowed it last week when she was over ... so it might take me a couple of days.
