She found the recipe on the Food in Jars website. It is a great website to check out especially if you are into canning. I found recipes for pear lavender jam, pear with brown sugar and cardamom, and strawberry vanilla as well as the vanilla pear made here.
|Vanilla Pear Jam- flecks of vanilla bean. Yum!|
This recipe started me on the path to making jams, jellies and preserves. So there's more to come...
Vanilla Pear Jam
makes 2- 8 oz jars
3 Bartlett pears, I peeled, cored and chopped the pears
1/2 vanilla bean, split and scraped
1/2 cup sugar
I placed all the ingredients except the pectin into a small sauce pan and allowed it to sit until the sugar had pulled liquid from the fruit. Cook over high or medium-high heat until it boils. Cook until the pears are soft, and the liquid thickens. Taste and balance sugar if necessary. Pour into warmed jars and allow to cool. Refrigerate.
