Description

Easy pear canning recipe.

Ingredients

  • 10 pounds Pears
  • 6 cups Water
  • 2 cups Sugar

Preparation

Wash 9 pint jars (either in dishwasher or hot soapy water). Sanitize lids to the jars in boiling water for 5 minutes.

Wash, peel and core pears. Make sure to cut out any mushy or brown spots. Cut pears how you prefer them (halves, slices, pieces, etc.) The pears may darken a little while standing; that’s okay, they lighten back up when cooked.

Heat water and sugar on the stove. Boil the solution for a couple of minutes and then add the pears. Boil the pears for 5 minutes.
Use a slotted spoon and funnel and put cooked pears into jars (leaving the liquid in the pan). Make sure to leave a 1/2 inch of space at the top of the jar. Once you have the pears in the jars, pour the solution in the jars making sure to leave that 1/2 inch of space at the top.

Put on the lids and rings. Hand tighten the rings. Place in a canning pot and cover with water, making sure there is at least an inch of water above the jars. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, boil 20 minutes.

Lift the jars out of the water (using canning grabbers) and place on a towel on the counter to cool. Let them sit for 24 hours.

It’s been a few years since I’ve canned pears. Nice easy to follow instructions with lovely results! The pears had started to brown a bit in the air, but as stated, bounced back to their original color once in the syrup.

I had some leftover syrup and some soft pears that will become a nice melomel.
