Do you have a pear tree or just happen to have stocked up a fairly good supply of ripe pears and don't know what to do with them?Well, you can make pear butter! Contrary to the name, we aren't actually making "butter", per se; there are no dairy products in this recipe. Prepared this way, the jars should have a shelf life of about 18 months to 2 years...and possibly even longer depending upon the conditions. Let's get started!

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:
  • 15 bartlett pears
  • 2 cups water
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
You can always make more or less by adjusting the recipe!
<p>does anyone know how many jars this will make?</p>
