My first whole basket I made pear slices in light syrup. Here's how I did it.
First I had to peel and cut up my pears. I had a bowl ready with cold water and a little lemon juice to put them in.
Then I prepared my syrup by mixing 1 cup of sugar with 4 cups of water. I brought it to a boil and added the pears then turned it down to simmer for about five minutes.
Finally, I used a slotted spoon to pack my jars and then poured syrup in over them.
After cleaning the rims and putting on my lids and bands, I processed the jars in a hot water bath for 20 minutes.
I'm excited for this healthy snack! Reminds me of my grandmother, who always made canned peaches.
