Last Wednesday I got busy. I cored and sliced this whole basket of pears.
I got the canner ready so when I was ready it would be ready.
Saved the cores for the chickens.
Added a little cinnamon and water.
Set the crock pot on high and went to bible study. When I came home they were nice and soft. I cut the propane tank on got the water boiling and used a hand held immersion blender to mush them up. Keith said that the pear sauce was a little runny compared to apple sauce so this week (Yes I am making more) I will omit the water and just add cinnamon.
I filled seven pint sized jars and left 1/2" head space and canned them in a water bath for 15 minutes. I always add 2 extra minutes for the water to come back to a boil. So they spent a total of 17 minutes in the water.
