I made a few jars of these last summer and loved them! This summer I am planning on canning many more than that. I didn't have cinnamon sticks so I just sprinkled in a little ground cinnamon with the apple juice. Super easy and delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel pears, and cut into halves and core.
  2. Treat to prevent darkening(I submerge them in lemon juice and a little water).
  3. Drain; rinse and drain again.
  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!
