Canned Pears

  • Pears, pared
  • Sugar
  • Cold water
Cut the pared pears into two equal parts and take out the cores. Lay them in the jars nicely until nearly full.

Mix 4 ounces of sifted sugar and nearly a pint of cold water in a basin until the sugar is dissolved. Pour this over the pears. Do this quantity for each quart jar.

Put a thin board in the bottom of a large tin boiler. Set the jars on the board and fill up the boiler with cold water. Set on the stove and let it come to a boil. Continue to boil them hard until the pears are as hot all throughout as the water.

Close them up and let them stand until nearly cold, then remove them from the water. Wipe dry and set away.
