I found this recipe on the side of a flea market vintage box of Kerr caps and I've copied it word for word here. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks so good I wanted to make sure and save it. I can see these with vanilla ice cream in the summer or as a side dish to a savory roasted meat in the winter.

How to Make Canned Honey Spiced Pears

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare jars and lids.
  2. Combine sugar, honey, vinegar and water in a large sauce pot. Tie spices together in a cheesecloth bag and place in sauce pot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat; cover; simmer ten minutes.
  3. Place pears in syrup and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook pears until hot throughout, about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove spice bag. Pack pears into hot jars, leaving 1/2" headspace. Ladle syrup over jars leaving 1/2" headspace. Remove air bubbles using a nonmetallic spatula. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and firmly, just until a point of resistance is met - fingertip tight.
  5. Process 10 minutes in a boiling water canner. Yield: about five pint jars.
  6. Note: To prevent pears from browning, treat peeled pears with Fruit-Fresh Fruit Protector.
