How do I make pear preserves?


Answer by  SGividen (652)

Start by selecting fresh ripe or frozen pears. Drain any excess juice from the pear and clean the fresh fruit. Boil the fruit in apple sauce in a medium saucepan until it is boiling then using a hand processor to mush the substance. Can using traditional canning methods with a pressurized lid.

Wash pears, then peel, core and slice. Cook it. Add sugar and mix. Keep the mixture overnight. Place it on the stove and stir. Boil it. Then minimize the heat. Allow the pears to cook until they turn a light golden brown. Syrup will begin to thicken. Stir it well. Add more sugar. The pears will have a translucent appearance.

To make pear preserves cut ripe pears into slices and dry. When leathery place into honey or suturated sugar solution. The pears will soften and become edible and when soft they can be ground into pear filling.

Peel, core, and chop pear into 3/4" cubes. Place a 2" layer of chopped pear in a crockpot, top with 1/4 cup white sugar, repeat layers until 2" from top. Do not add liquid. Cover. Cook on high until pear is translucent and there is a lot of juice. Turn to low, take off lid, evaporate until desired thickness.

It's much like making jam; you boil the pears in a mixture of sugar with pectin and put the mixture into sterilized cans, and seal it.
