Pear Honey

This is a Paula Deen recipe and makes 12-16 half pint jars. It can, however, easily be cut in half.

Pear Honey

8 C (about 3 pouds) peeled, cored, and chopped pears
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple with syrup
10 C sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

Chop pears in blender or food processor. Mix all ingredients and cook until pears are tender and mixture thickens, approx 30min to 1 hour. Place in sterilized jars and seal while hot. Process jars in a water bath. Process 5 minutes for half-pints. Remove from hot water bath and place on a dishcloth and let sit overnight to make srue jars have sealed properly. If jars have not sealed you can reprocess.

Note: If mixture does not thicken after 45 mintues- 1 hour you can addd a little bit of prepared pecting to the hot mixture to thicken it slightly.
