Directions

  1. Peel pears, and cut into halves and core.

  4. Cook pears in water one layer at a time until hot throughout.
  5. Heat the apple juice just to a boil.
  6. Pack hot pears into hot jars, leaving 1/2" headspace.
  7. Place 1 cinnamon stick in each jar.
  8. Ladle hot apple juice over pears, leaving 1/2" headspace.
  9. Remove air bubbles(I do this with a knife).
  10. Adjust two piece caps.
  11. Process pints 20 minutes in a boiling water canner. Enjoy!
