Pears
Home

The pear's firmer texture carries well through the preserving.

Ingredients (14 quarts) Instructions:
  1. Wash pears in cold water.
  2. Remove skins, halve, core and put in lemon water.
  3. Heat syrup to boiling.
  4. Once all pears are done, add to boiling syrup and boil for 5 minutes.
  5. Fill jars gently pressing down to get as much fruit in as possible.
  6. Cover in boiling syrup, ½" headspace. Remove air bubbles.
  7. Water bath for 30 minutes.

Notes

Coring pears can be tricky. There is a center round core that contains the seeds, but there is also a fiber that runs the whole length of the pear. Both need to be removed.
