pear butter

3 lbs. pears (or 4 c.
prepared fruit)
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 1/2 c. crushed pineapple
1 box Sur-Jel
5 1/2 c. sugar

how to-
Cook pears until soft (approx. 10-15 min.) at a low simmer. After fruit has softened,
mash with potato masher. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, pineapple, and Sur-Jel. Bring to
a hard boil, then stir in sugar. Bring again to a hard boil. Cook for 5-10 minutes. (Test to
see if ready by putting a small amount in a bowl, and see if it sets up when cool.) If it is
ready to set up, turn off heat and let cool 1-2 minutes. Skim off foam and pour into jelly
jars and seal (canning water bath)
