Enjoy the taste of ripe, in-season pears all year long with this simple jam. Spread on toast or English muffins, or try on gingerbread, bran muffins, and hot cross buns. The jam also makes a tasty glaze for pork tenderloin.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place pear in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Place pear, rind, juice, and vanilla bean in a large saucepan. Stir in pectin. Place pan over high heat; bring to a boil. Stir in sugar; cook 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Step 2

Remove from heat. Skim foam from surface; discard. Remove vanilla bean. Scrape seeds into pear mixture; discard bean. Stir 5 minutes to ensure fruit is suspended in jam. Cover and chill overnight.

Step 3

Note: Refrigerate Pear-Vanilla Freezer Jam in airtight containers up to three weeks, or freeze up to six months.
