Directions:
Add half of sugar to water and salt and boil 2 minutes. Add pears and boil 15 minutes. Add remaining sugar and cook until syrup is thick and clear. Be sure fruit is tender. Cover and let stand overnight. Pack fruit in hot sterilized jars. Boil sugar until consistency of honey. Pour over fruit and seal.

Personal Notes:
