This is a simple recipe and posted per recipe request. The recipe doesn't state if you should peel and core the pears before cooking them, I would definitely not skip this step, I think the pear peels would make some pretty gritty preserves.
- Boil 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water together for 15 minutes.
- Add pears and sliced lemon and cook 15 minutes.
- Add remaining sugar and water and cook until pears are clear and transparent and syrup is thick.
- Pack into clean hot jars and seal at once.
