Canning Bartlett Pears

Made with Farm Fresh Moelker Pears!

Completion Time:
Aprox. 90 Minutes

Pears take 4 - 7 days to ripen, so plan ahead. Pears ripen from the inside out, so apply pressure to the bottom of the pear and if there is some "give" to the bottom they are ready. They will also get yellow, but the bottom of the pear is the best way to tell if they are ripe.

  1. Peel and core pears, put them in the jars.
  2. Mix 1 cup pineapple juice or 1 cup sugar with 3 cups hot water (repeat as necessary).
  3. Pour liquid over pears in jar.
  4. Clean top of jar and put on lid and ring.
  5. Process 10 minutes in a hot water bath.
