This tastes so much like honey, your friends will never believe that the bees did not make it. Great on hot biscuits and to give as gifts. This was my grandmother's recipe that she made every fall. Hope you love it!

Ingredients

  • 8 cups peeled, cored and chopped pears

  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

  • 8 cups white sugar

Directions

  1. Place chopped pears into a large pot, and pour pineapple juice over them to prevent them from browning. Stir in sugar, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir frequently to prevent scorching. When the pears are at a full boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until the mixture is the color and texture of honey. The longer you cook it, the thicker it gets. Cooking time is usually 2 to 3 hours.

  2. Ladle into hot sterile jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Wipe rims with a clean damp cloth, and seal jars with lids and rings. Process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes, or the amount of time recommended by your local extension for your area.
