Pear Pineapple Honey

Most people call this Pear Honey.  It's alot like Pear Butter but with a taste of Pineapples.  I call it Pear-Pineapple because I make my Pear Honey differently.

 For this recipe you will need.

8 cups of chopped pears
1 can of crushed pineapples with the syrup
8 cups of sugar
1 tbsp of lemon juice
My batch yielded 7 pints.

Put all ingredients into a large stainless steel pot and bring to a boil over med/high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture thickens.  Usually takes about 45 minutes.  Should look like this..

This is what mine was like after about 25 minutes.

Once your jam is as thick as you want it to be.  Ladle into hot, sterile jars leaving ¼ inch headspace. 

Wipe the rims of your jars with a paper towel dipped in vinegar to clean and insure a good seal.

Put on lids and rings and tighten down finger tight.

Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes, turn off heat and wait 5 more minutes and remove jars.

Leave jars on counter to cool for 24 hours.  Label and Store.
