Ingredients
  Firm ripe pears 12 Medium
  Sliced preserved ginger 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Sugar 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

1. Cut pears in half; pare; core.
2. Combine ginger, sugar, water and lemon juice in a large skillet; bring to boiling, stirring constantly; add pears. Simmer 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender but still firm enough to hold their shape. Lift from syrup with a slotted spoon; pack into 3 hot, sterilized, pint jars.
3. Cook syrup 15 minutes longer, or until reduced about half; pour over pears in jars to fill to within 1/4 inch of rim. Process in hot-water bath 20 minutes. Cool jars, label and date. Store in a cool, dry place.
