DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and core about 2 1/2 pouds pears.
  • Peel oranges, remove seeds and any loose membrane. (I used "juice" oranges, not navels, for a more intense flavor.).
  • Grind or chop pears and oranges very fine.
  • Mix well.
  • Measure 4 1/2 cups of the mixture into a very large saucepan.
  • Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.
  • Measure sugar and set aside.
  • Mix pectin into fruits in saucepan.
  • Place over high heat, stirring continually, until the mixture comes to a hard boil.
  • Immediately add all the sugar and butter and stir well.
  • Bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and skim off any foam with a metal spoon.
  • Stir and skim for 5 minutes to cool slightly and prevent floating fruit.
  • Ladle quickly into glass jars, wipe rims and apply lids & rings.
  • Process in a water-bath canner for 10 minutes for half-pints, 15 minutes for pints.
  • Remove from canner and place jars on a clean towel to cool.
