The Ball canning book has a number of recipes and canning info. I have followed the directions there for "regular" pears and also cinnamon pears. Both were delicious.

I like to make pear juice. It helps if you have a good juicer. I wash, peel and cut into pieces to fit the hole in the top of the machine and juice making sure I have some fruit fresh in the receiving container to keep the juice from turning brown, no sugar added. I water bath in quart jars for 5 minutes after it come back to a boil.

My pear tree is full this year and I'm wondering what to do with all of them. Last year we gave so many away that not everyone could eat all of them and some went to waste. Can I can them and how do I do this?

Absolutely yes, pears can be canned. Years ago I did them by the 40 pound box. Peel the pears, cut in half or quarters, removing core, put in a sterilized jar and cover with a simple syrup (sugar and water, boiled together, sorry, I forget the amounts, but if the pears are sweet, you can make a light syrup and omit some calories). Seal and then I think you have to water bath process them. Again, I can't remember how long, but I bet the instructions would be on the Kerr or Bernadin websites. (08/25/2005)

Canning pears is easy. Leave the peel on or take it off, leave the pear in halves or in chunks. Make a thin sugar syrup (1 cup sugar to 2 cups water), pour over pear pieces in jar and process for 15 - 20 minutes depending on the jar size. Just be careful, process them too long and you will have mush.

Another option is to slice the pears, peeled first, into thin slices, dip in lemon juice, and dehydrate. Kids love it! (08/25/2005)

If you find you tire of canning pears please consider giving them to your local food bank. They are in desperate need of fresh foods to give to families who have a hard time eating properly regardless of the time of year. Thank you for your consideration. (08/25/2005)

How about some pear butter? I use the "Ball Canning Guide" recipe, except I remove all peels and cores and discard. I get the lightest, cleanest tasting treat! Give it a try. (08/26/2005)

My mom canned the pears from our tree when I was younger and I substituted them for the bananas in a banana nut bread recipe, without the nuts, and it was fantastic! You've got to try it! (09/22/2005)
