Somewhere in the shuffle there are a few recipes that got mistakenly deleted from the site that were really great canning recipes and I wanted to re-post them in case there was some interest. I also wanted to have record of them in my canning recipes collection.

The first one to add is the Ginger Pear Butter. It came out really flavorful and I finally finished the last jar of this butter last month.

The ginger was great with the pears and the consistency of the pear butter was smooth and silky. Enjoy!
