Pear Vanilla Jam

Bosc Pears were on sale last weekend at my grocery store so I picked up 7 to ripen on the counter during the week. 

whole vanilla beans give this jam lots of flavor
Last night they were ready to turn into one of my favorite things to can,

my emulsion blender makes mashing the fruit an easy job
Pear Vanilla Jam.

love the flecks of vanilla seeds
One of the easiest jams to make since you don't even peel the pears first, and a small scoop takes the core out easily.

10 minute water bath
 I haven't made this recipe in a couple years, and I'm not sure why.  It's so good.

Now I have 6 jars in the pantry to have with a little french bread and goat cheese or warm on an English muffin.
