Percy Pear's Canning Scare

"I have a bad feeling about today." 

"I'll hide in the cabinet.  No one will ever look for me in here."

"Uh-oh."

"Here we are.  Waiting for a trim and a hot bath.
  This is a really bad day."

"Oh, joy!  I have been saved!"

A sweet lady at my husband's job gave him a bag of pears harvested from her pear tree.  He brought them home and today I canned Ginger Pear Preserves.  Sweet and delicious with pears, lime, and fresh ginger.  And, bless his heart, Percy doesn't realize that he's going into the second batch tomorrow!

Wow, sounds good, could you post the recipe? I think you should spare Percy after all he's been thru. ;)

So glad you found the recipe! I did spare Percy from the second round, but, alas, he had to join his friends in the Brandied Pear Halves I'm canning today!
