DIRECTIONS

  • Sterilize 6 half-pint jars and lids and set them aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the sugar, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and fresh ginger to a boil. Lower the temperature so the mixture is simmering, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  • Add the quartered pears and crystallized ginger to the saucepan and continue cooking for 30 minutes, until the preserves thicken and coat a spoon.
  • Pack the pears and gingered syrup into the sterilized jars, and seal in a boiling water canner.
