4 lbs of pears 4 lbs of sugar 2 Lemons 1 Dsp of Ground Ginger (this can be varied depending on your taste)
Peel, Core and quarter pears. Place in a large bowl and cover with sugar, leave overnight.
Turn into preserving pan, add grated rind and juice of lemons and ground ginger. Initially stir over low heat dissolving sugar then bring to boil. Boil gently stirring all the time, until fruit becomes transparent and setting point is reached then jar it in sterilised jars.
I sometimes add a cube of hot crystalised ginger to one or two jars, for my ginger loving friends..
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
