Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
This is a quick and easy recipe for a decadent pear and vanilla bean honey (jam). Perfect on an English muffin or paired with cheese and crackers.
Dried fruits added to jams are an easy secret weapon -- flavor first, of course, but also added drama as evidenced here in fresh pear jam with slices of candied strawberry suspended in the golden goodness.
Going easy on sugar doesn't have to mean giving up jam. This pear lemon jam is sweetened with white grape juice concentrate. It tastes good, too!
One of my absolute favorite jams, this tastes like biting into a ripe pear.
A translucent, golden-y jam that uses the pears as a base and allows the vanilla flavor to star.
A wintery jam with warming spices, two tree fruits, and the tart lick of cranberries make this jam perfect for dark and dreary days.
Nectarines and pears combine with dried ancho & guajillo chiles and tequila for a sparkling, Ferber-esque jam with definite twist. Fruit, chiles and booze. Need I say more?
