4 lb pears

4 T finely diced fresh ginger

Zest of 1 lemon

4 T fresh lemon juice

1 ¼ c sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp cloves

Peel, core and dice the pears.

Prepare for canning. Wash the jars and flat lids with hot, soapy water. Put the jars in the canning pot and fill the pot with hot water. Heat over medium-high heat to keep the jars hot. Place the lids in a heat-proof bowl.

In a deep stockpot, bring all the ingredients to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the pears appear translucent. Remove from heat and stir gently.

Move some of the boiling water from the canning pot into the heat-proof bowl containing the lids. Line the hot jars up on a folded towel, then pour the water out of the heat-proof bowl and off the lids.

Fill the jars up to ¼” below the rim. Use a clean towel to wipe any preserves off the rims, then top each jar with a lid and a tightened ring. Place the jars back in the canning pot and make sure they are covered by at least 1 inch of water. Bring to a bo

Notes: These had just the right level of sweetness, with a spicy kick of ginger. Everyone agreed that these would be perfect in a pear crumble!
