Pear Nectar

Canning Pear Nectar Recipe

When we can pears some of the pears have bad spots. We peel them and pare away the bad spots. We set them aside for use in nectar. Of course you can just make nectar of all of them if you wish. For each quart of fruit add 1 cup of water.

You can put them through either a food processor or a blender depending on how smooth you want it to be. Add sugar to your taste if desired. We sometimes add a little cinnamon and/or allspice.

Bring puree to a boil. Stir to prevent sticking.

Ladle into hot jars leaving /4 head space. Remove bubbles. Adjust 2-piece lids.

Water bath in boiling water for 15 minutes for pints and quarts. We use a steam canner. Time is the same.
