True to my new agenda to can every surplus thing that comes my way (especially since I now have such an abundance of canning jars), a friend had extra pears from her tree and gave me what she didn't need.
The pears were too soft to use the apple peeler, so I peeled them all by hand.
Then cored them. (The chickens got the leftovers.)
Made the syrup. I prefer to use a thin syrup.
A quick wash of the pears...
Then into the hot syrup they went to cook for a few minutes before packing them into the jars.
Got 13 pints. The nice thing about canned pears is they're so pearly white and pretty in the jars.
