Fabulous flavor. Use pear peelings to make juice for the most wonderful Pear Jelly. Lemon zest, fresh lemon juice and 2 vanilla beans per recipe transformed these ingredients into my all-time favorite jelly/jam ever.
This is the best jam I've ever made. Most jams are not quite as good as the original fruit but I actually thought this jam was better than the pears. I didn't have lemons so I used lime juice and skipped the zest. My friend used lemons. We compared and actually decided the lime is better. The jam has an even brighter and fresher flavor.
I've never been much of a jelly maker, but this stuff is fool-proof. The flavor is bright and delicious, and the texture is perfect. Wonderful to give to friends, if you can bear to part with it!
Made this last year with pears from my dad's farm. Gave them away as Christmas gifts for co-workers. I now have 3 co-workers bringing boxes of pears in so I will make them more. I think it was a hit
