Judy's Pear Honey


Since many of us have a few pears laying around, here is a great recipe for them. Compliments of Judy G.

9 lbs. of pears
7 lbs. of sugar
1 cup cider vinegar
1 stick cinnamon and 1 stick for each jar

Peel and core and quarter pears,  add 4 lbs. sugar,  1 cup vinegar, and cinnamon stick, then let sit overnight to draw out juices.

In morning drain juice in large kettle and add rest of sugar and bring to boil then add pears.  Reduce heat and cook slowly for 2 hours.  Syrup should have a honey color and pears are transparent.  Don’t cook with cinnamon stick. 

Pack pear honey in hot jars and place cinnamon stick in each jar, then seal and preserve in hot water bath.  The color gives the recipe its name.

Judy sends her love to all.
