Pear Preserves

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

This is a simple recipe and posted per recipe request. The recipe doesn't state if you should peel and core the pears before cooking them, I would definitely not skip this step, I think the pear peels would make some pretty gritty preserves.

Tried the recipe tonight. It was quick the pears tasted so sweet. Didn't think I would ever get the syrup thick enough. Guess I was rushing it
