Pear Honey is just a little thicker than traditional honey and thinner than a preserve or jam. Pear Honey is so easy to make and has become a staple in our house for years ever since a friend of mine would give me an abundant amount of fresh pears to eat. This lushes breakfast treat is wonderful with everything from buttered toast, waffles, french toast, and My Tall Buttermilk Biscuits.
8 lbs. pears
5 lbs. sugar
20 oz. can crushed pineapple in own juice
Pare and core pears. Grind pears with a food grinder or in a food processor. Mix all ingredients together. Cook in a large stock pot. Start on warm until sugar dissolves. Turn heat to medium.
