DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, core and quarter the pears. (While you're doing this, add the cut pieces to a large bowl of water with some lemon juice squeezed in, to prevent darkening.).
  • Drain the pears, and transfer them to the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse them a few times. You're looking to get them chopped, not to puree them.
  • Grate a couple pinches of fresh nutmeg over the sugar.
  • Add the pears, sugar, and lemon juice to a large pot, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Simmer 40 minutes. You may have to stir frequently to prevent burning.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat, and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Spoon into hot jars, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Wipe the jar rims and adjust the lids.
  • Process in boiling water for 10 minutes.
