Recipe for Orange Pears

Orange Pears are a delicious canning treat.

| July/August 2015

Emery Lawson, Cassopolis, Michigan, writes that he and his wife have been canning for more than 50 years; they are both now in their 70s. “My canning books are ones that I have had for a long time. This one comes from the canning book by Ball Corporation.”

Orange Pears

1. Make a medium syrup of one part sugar to two parts water, making enough to cover pears in a stainless steel slow cooker (do not use aluminum pots). Add two cinnamon sticks and the rind of 1⁄4 orange per quart of pears. Cook pears for about 5 to 6 minutes in hot syrup.

2. Remove cinnamon sticks and orange rinds. Hot pack pears in jars. Process in hot-water bath for 20 (pints) to 25 minutes (quarts).
