I got some pears from Washington this week and have found a super yummy way to preserve them in my pantry. This recipe is super easy and you will want to eat the whole jar yourself! I know my family did!
The recipe calls it Pear Honey. I call it Pear Orange Yummy-ness!
It's more like a marmalade and is fabulous on toast!
Wash, peel and core:
Zest one whole orange into heavy large stockpot.
Peel the orange and discard peels.
In the blender put the cut pieces of fruit and blend to a puree. The chunkyness is up to you depending on how long you blend the fruit. I did two pieces at a time.
Put the fruit puree in large stockpot with the zest.
Add 3 cups sugar. Stir well.
Cook to boiling. Let boil while you prepare your jars.
Fill jars with fruit mixture leaving 1 inch headspace.
Put lids in about 1 inch water and heat to a simmer. Remove from heat and place lids on jars. Fix rings and process in a boiling water canner, or steam canner for 20 minutes.
Remove and let cool for 24 hours to ensure a good seal on your jar. Label and put in your pantry.
Luckily there was a little left that I didn't put into jars. My Husband loved his breakfast of eggs, peaches, Oatmeal Molassses bread toast, and Pear Honey.
One more homemade treasure to add to my pantry!
