When you can’t love, can

Nectarine Vanilla Preserves

  • 3lbs diced nectarines (I left the skins on)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 Vanilla Bean, scraped
  • Pinch of Salt

Boil all ingredients in a heavy bottom pot until mixture has cooked down (approximately 20 minutes).  Test gel with the “plate test”.  Once it is the correct consistency, add to jars, seal and process in a water bath for 5 minutes. This yielded 5 ½ pint jars with a little extra for sampling.

Made with nectarines from my garden
