A few days ago, our kind neighbor, Carol, gave us a jar of Pear Honey. It was delicious! Of course, we wanted the recipe since we often get pears from one of Papi's brothers in the fall. Sad to say, they didn't have an abundance of pears this year, but should have next year. Something to look forward to.

Well, I found some other recipes for Pear Honey, but none exactly like this one so thought I would pass it along. Sorry there is no tutorial or picture but I'm sure you can handle this simple recipe without help.

4 c. peeled, crushed pears
3 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
1 lemon ground

Combine all ingredients and cook in a heavy pan stirring about every 15 minutes or until spreading consistency. Pour into hot sterilized jars; seal.

Makes 2 1/2 pints

(Will be honey colored if cooked no longer than necessary for right consistency)

Thank you Carol for sharing.
