Pear conserve

name tags

I planted three pear trees back in the winter. All I really want are the sand pears which some people also call Asian pears or pineapple pears. Sand is the best adjective, because they are gritty and coarse. I lost all the blossoms to freeze so had to buy pears at the farmers market. I bought 2 baskets last week and two more this week.

Peel and core the pears and add a whole, fresh pineapple putting all of it through the food processor. Add 4 cups of cane sugar.

Bring it up to a rolling boil, add cinnamon and nutmeg if you like, or a whole vanilla bean, and continue to boil for 20 minutes, stirring constantly. The pears and pineapples will become glassy and glossy. Can it all like jam following the standard water bath canning instructions.
