Autumn Jam with Pears, Mission Figs, and Cinnamon

Highlighting the sweet freshness of autumn figs and pears, this jam is a fall favorite. Tart orange provides a touch of zip, while just a hint of cinnamon adds warmth for those shorter, cooler evenings.

Note: If you prefer a less chunky jam, feel free to chop your fruit into smaller pieces before starting the recipe. And don't skip out on the tiny amount of butter—it goes a long way to prevent foaming.
