Pear Preserves Turned to Sugar Once Cooled

My home made pear preserves turned to sugar after cooling in the jars for a few days. Does anyone know if it is possible to reheat, add more liquid and can them back in clean jars?

I can preserves, jellies and jams all the time and have never had that happen. Are you following a recipe? I use the recipes out of the pectin box or Ball blue book canning book....not sure why that is happening unless there is not enough liquid. Cannot recommend recooking and recanning without knowing what recipe you are using. Let me know and I will try to help you. golfersmom85 AT

No, the pears will be nothing but mush. I think you might be using too heavy of a syrup in your preserves. Double check your recipe. You should not need pectin or other ingredient like for jams or jellies.

I have found a light syrup is great for pears.

Good luck.
