DIRECTIONS

  • Combine pears, water and lemon juice in a heavy bottomed 8-quart pan.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring often.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer until soft, stirring often (about 30 minutes).
  • Add sugar and cinnamon, bring to a boil.
  • If too chunky put it thru a food mill.
  • Fill prepared hot jars with hot sauce, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.
  • Gently run a narrow nonmetallic spatula between sauce and jars to release air bubbles.
  • Wipe rims clean; top with hot lids, then firmly screw on bands.
  • Process in boiling water bath for 15 minutes for pints, 20 minutes for quarts.
  • You may want to change the amount of sugar depending on your taste.
