Ginger pears

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 pounds Hard green pears; peeled, cored and sliced
3 pounds Sugar
2 Lemons
2 ounces Green ginger root; scraped and minced

Cover pears with sugar; let stand for several hours. Squeeze lemons; drizzle a little lemon juice on ginger. Chop lemon rinds fine. When pears are ready, bring to a boil; add ginger root, lemon juice and rind. Turn heat low; simmer until pears are clear and very thick; stir gently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and pour into sterilized jars. Seal hot.

Yields 4 pints. Pear slices should remain distinct and unbroken but should be almost transparent.
