4 lb Hard green pears; peeled,
-cored and sliced
3 lb Sugar
2 oz Green ginger root; scraped
Cover pears with sugar; let stand for several hours. Squeeze lemons;
drizzle a little lemon juice on ginger. Chop lemon rinds fine. When pears
are ready, bring to a boil; add ginger root, lemon juice and rind. Turn
heat low; simmer until pears are clear and very thick; stir gently to
prevent sticking. Remove from heat and pour into sterilized jars. Seal hot.
Yields 4 pints. Pear slices should remain distinct and unbroken but should
be almost transparent.
