Maddy’s Pear and Vanilla Jam

Prep time: | Cook time: | Serves 2-3 medium jars

  • 1 kg ripe Williams pears, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 500g Organic raw sugar
  • 1 Vanilla bean (or 1 large teaspoon vanilla bean paste)
  • 2 or 3 medium jars, boiled then dried in the oven to sterilise
  1. Mix together pears and sugar in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Add the vanilla.
  2. Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, then use a stick blender to achieve your desired consistency, leaving some fruity chunks.
  3. Pour into jars and store in fridge until eaten.
