The full-bodied flavor of deep red wine and tasty texture of pears combine to make this an utterly delicious jam to use on just about anything. For the wine, a Merlot works great here but a Sauvignon is delicious as well.

Like Sugary Sand

Nicholas Cage, the angel who has never experienced physical sensations such as taste, asks human Meg Ryan to explain the taste of a deliciously ripe pear.

“Sweet, juicy, soft on your tongue, grainy like a sugary sand that dissolves in your mouth.” That’s one of my favorite lines from a movie. It’s from City of Angels. Not my favorite movie, just a favorite line.  It’s such a perfect description. Never mind that the angel didn’t know what sugar tasted like any more than a pear, or what sand felt like, for that matter. But a perfectly ripe pear really is like sugary sand that dissolves in your mouth. So, for better or worse, every time since that I get a ripe pear, I think, “it’s like sugary sand.”

Use Ripe Pears

Any pear will work here, as long as it’s ripe. A ripe pear is going to have a little softness and give if gently pressed.
