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.
What is the best free site for recipes for canning pears?
I'm trying to find recipes for canning and preserving pears. My Mom had several recipes that I loved as a kid, but unfortunately she's gone now....
