This is Renee's Spiced Pears! Renee can't eat apples so pears are a main staple for her.
- 5 pounds pears, cleaned, peeled, sliced and set in lime water so they don't 'brown' while waiting.
Syrup for Pears:
- 2 pints the light agave syrup
- 2 tablespoons real vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1/2 tsp ground cardamon
- 4 Tblsp lime juice (since I can't use lemon!)
Bring the syrup to a boil. Filling to 1/2" headspace. Remove air bubbles, refill if necessary.
Sterilize 4 quarts or 8 pints.
Fill jars with sliced pears and cover with the hot agave spiced mixture!
Wipe rims, add hot lids/rings. Process in water bath for 15 minutes for quarts or pints.
