I picked quite a few pears....peeled and peeled....
Pear Sauce Recipe
Makes around 11 to 12 pints
25 lbs (about) of pears peeled and sliced in chunks away from core
Put cores and peelings in your compost bucket!
3 cups of granulated sugar
4 tblsps of lime or lemon juice
Prepare jars and canner
(wash jars then boil to sterilize...I save the boiled water for canning later)
Cook chunks of pear until just tender (add enough water to keep from sticking)
Dip chunks of pear from water (discard or drink water) and puree in food processor until fine
Return puree to large pot
Add sugar and lime or lemon juice
Heat until bubbly
Fill prepared jars leaving 1/2 inch head space
Cap with prepared lid and band
Place in canner with water at least two inches above top of jars
Bring to a boil
Process 20 minutes at a rapid boil
Turn off heat and let set 5 minutes
Remove from canner and allow to cool!
Jars will make a popping sound when sealed
Do Not push down button that indicates sealing on lid
