Lovely Delicious Pear Vanilla Jam
I have been making jams for a very long time. I say jams and not jellies because I don't think I have ever actually made a batch of jelly. I love nice thick and chunky jam so that is what I make. Nothing in the world can compare to smearing a big dollop of homemade jam on a fresh baked biscuit for breakfast.
This lovely Pear Vanilla Jam recipe from Food in Jars has become my new favorite jam!

Would this work with pears already canned. I have 3 lb cans of pears give to me. Looking for way to use them.
I have never canned with pears that have already been processed but it should work. The only difference might be that the jam will turn out smoother verses chunky because the cooked pears are already soft.
There's not too many people in my circle that has ever had pear jam or syrup. I've been making it for years as my mom did too. Grew up with it. I love it. But never thought of adding vanilla. Will have to check that out.
The vanilla really adds a great flavor.
Can you give me an idea of about how long you cooked yours?
It is hard to give an exact cook time. Many things will play into it. The humidity and amount of water in the pears can change from season to season. I just checked the recipe and it says to cook until you can mash the pears easily. Sorry, I couldn't be more helpful.
Can you substitute the vanilla bean for vanilla extract?
Heather you can make the substitution but vanilla extract has a weaker vanilla flavoring.
This looks so good. How do I get to the recipe?

Hello! I have tried this recipe, and it is delicious! I did want to ask a question, my jam turns out a little runny, and I'd like it to be thicker. I have followed the recipe to the letter, but it still comes out a little thin. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I have never had a problem with any of my jam recipes not setting up. This is not my recipe but it turned out perfect for me. Try putting the jam in the refrigerator to get cold. Jam is usually thinner before it is chilled.

Did you peel your pears?- your jam looks so smooth, but the recipe says peeling is not necessary
Flour On My Face
Yes I did peel the pears even though the recipe said it wasn't nessasary.
This flavor sounds delicious. I'm pretty sure I would horde that too. 😉
The jam looks wonderful.
