- Make a crisscross cut on the bottom of each nectarine and submerge in a pot full of boiling water. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from pot and immediately submerge them into a bowl full of ice water and ice cubes. (This process will help make the nectarines easier to peel.)
- Peel them, remove the pit and cut them into 10 equal sized pieces.
- Peel the pears, remove the stems and seeds and cut them into very thin slices.
- Use a stainless steel pot. Add the nectarine pieces, the pear slices, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Mix together.
- Let the mixture simmer for 2 minutes.
- Transfer mixture to a bowl. Cover with a piece of parchment paper and refrigerate overnight.
- The following day, put the mixture back in the pot and boil for 10 minutes over high heat. Gently mix and remove the froth that comes to the top, when necessary.
- Transfer the marmalade to a jar. Seal jar.
