Nectarine-Vanilla Bean Jam
To prepare nectarines, bring a large saucepan of water to boiling. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Carefully lower two or three nectarines into the boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove nectarines from boiling water and place in ice water. When nectarines are cool enough to handle, carefully remove and discard skins. Repeat with remaining nectarines. Cut each nectarine in half; remove the pit. Chop nectarines. You should have about 4 cups chopped nectarines.
