How To Make pear pineapple preserves!

  • 1
    Prepare and sterilize jars and jar rings. Keep jars warm in boiling hot water or on the Heated dry setting of your dishwasher until ready to use. I generally use the Rinse cyle just before using the jars for canning.

    Mash pears, add crushed pineapple and juice. Pour fruit into a 6 or 8 quart saucepan.
  • 3
    Gradually stir in pectin. Over high heat, and stirring constantly bring fruit to full boil that cannot be stirred down.
  • 4
    Add entire amount of sugar all at once and stir to dissolve. Return to a full rolling boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 5
    Skim foam from top. Ladle into hot jars and fill 1/8 inch from the top. Make sure to use a wet paper towel to clean rim of jar of any preserve on rim.
  • 6
    Carefully place lids and tighten rings. Process in a water boiling canner or steam canner for 5 minutes for 1/2 Pints and 10 minutes for Pints.

    Add an additional five minutes for every 3,000 miles above sea level.
