    • 7 (about 2 pounds) apricots
    • 4 (about 1 pound) firm-fleshed plums, pitted and halved

    • Sterilize five 1-quart jars. Drain the mixed fruit and pack all fruit into the hot jars to within 1/2 inch of the top. Add a vanilla-bean-pod piece to each jar and fill the jars with hot syrup, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.
