Total TimePrep: 2 hours Process: 10 min.
My daughter loved this so much she hid it from everybody! To keep the pears white, as I peeled I kept them in a large bowl of 16 cups of water and 2 Tablespoons of white vinegar.
Good taste but took much longer than 2 hours, closer to 5
Very easy and tasty. I chopped my pears up a little finer than the ones shown in the picture.
When I click on "view recipe" it doesn't show the lemon juice that is mentioned in directions. I guessed at it so we'll see how they turn out.
For easier pealing cut pears into quarters on a cutting Board with a sharp. Makes pealing a much quicker.
What happens if water doesn't thicken after hour and half
Such a simple yet delicious recipe! I've made two batches and wish I had found this recipe sooner. I have an old fashioned pear tree that has been in my yard at least 50 years, so the hardest part was peeling the pears. Next year I'm making enough to give as Christmas presants!
I'm the first reviewer of such a fantastic recipe?! I halved this recipe to try it out, and wish I made the full batch. This is delicious way to use up an abundance of pears that always seem to ripen at the same time. I must have used a different variety of pear than that in the photo by Taste Of Home, as mine held a nice yellowy shade even after processing. I'll keep this recipe handy for the future.
