I start to twitch when I think about pouring over a pound of refined sugar into my regular fruit preserves. I strive every day to cut back on sugar, so making jam always feels like a compromise to me. I've finally found a recipe with no added sugar, and it's a real treat. This Spiced Vanilla Pear Jam is refined sugar-free, and it gets a boost of flavor from cardamom, cinnamon, and vanilla beans. It's a great example of a sugar-free jam recipe that works. It's nearly sugar free, except for the fruit, of course!
