 Ingredients List

  • 14 lb Pear
  • 1 qt Cider vinegar
  • 6 lb Sugar
  • 1 ts Cloves, whole
  • 1 ts Cinnamon, stick


Any good preserving pear may be used. Slice and remove core or pickle
whole; the latter method is preferred when Sickel pears are used. Peel
pears. Put spices in a small cheese cloth bag and add to the vinegar and
sugar and bring to a boil. Add pears and cook until tender. The pears will
look clear when tender. Remove them with a spoon and place them in
sterilized jars. Boil the syrup until it becomes thick, the pour it over
pears and seal. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes,
