Directions:
Peel and cut off core the best way possible. let set over night, don't forget to cover in sugar. Next day cook over slow heat, trying to make pear preserves, now call Muriel and ask for help, she said did you let them set overnight, yes, did you cover them in sugar, nope, I just now put sugar and water on them, and just started cooking, are they getting tender?, you better put some more sugar on them, and you might add some sure jell, and you could just can them, if they are tender, and put in a water bath for ten minutes. I followed her instructions, they are tender, a really pretty golden color, put them in a water bath, let water boil over top of sealed jars, made five pints, absolutely beautiful, I think they are good enough looking for the fair.
