- 9 cups pears, ground in food processor
- 1 lime or lemon, peel and all, ground in food processor
- 1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple
- 1 16-oz jar honey
- 5 cups sugar
Bring to boil then lower heat to medium and cook 20 minutes in stock pot until thick and clear, stirring occasionally. Skim foam if necessary. Fill hot jars (pints or half pints) leaving 1/4-inch headspace.Wipe top edge to assure good seal. Adjust two-piece caps and seal. Process in boiling water bath for 20 minutes. Jars should be covered by 1″ to 2″ of water. When the water comes to a rolling boil, cover pot with lid and start to count the processing time. Boil gently and steadily for the time recommended then remove jars at once and place on rack or on towels away from heat and away from any draft. During the first hour or so of cooling you may hear a popping sound come from the jars. This means that the vacuum effect has taken place, which causes the lids to pop down and seal.
Makes GREAT Christmas gifts for teachers, mail deliverers, and other fortunate souls.
