|Chopped walnuts||3 Tablespoon (If Desired)|
|Maraschino cherries||6 (If Desired)|
Cut pears in medium-sized pieces, mix with sugar and let stand till some juice forms.
Boil down till it starts to thicken slightly.
Squeeze juice from oranges and lemons.
Slice orange and lemon skins thinly or put through grinder.
Steam skins till tender and add to pears along with juice.
Continue boiling till of desired thickness.
(Marmalade is more apt to stick during this second boiling so boil pears away sufficiently before adding oranges and lemons.) Add chopped walnuts and cherries just before sealing if desired.
