The spiced pear flavor really comes through and this yummy frozen yogurt made an outstanding "sandwich" with ginger snap cookies. Go ahead - make yourself and your kids happy! Jammy Frozen Yogurt Makes 5 cups frozen yogurt Ingredients 3 cups unsweetened whole milk yogurt (not Greek style) 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup jam (I used McEvoy Ranch Spiced Pear Jam) 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt Directions Pour the yogurt, sugar, jam, and salt into a blender and puree. Pour the mixture into a container and refrigerate until cold. Freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions for your ice-cream maker. When the yogurt is sufficiently frozen, transfer it to an airtight container, cover tightly, and freeze. It will keep for a week in the freezer. Note: The sugar in this recipe doesn't just sweeten the yogurt, it also helps maintain a scoopable consistency. You can reduce the sugar if you want, but know that the yogurt might harden and develop ice crystals while in the freezer.
