(Preserved Fruit) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Pears should always be peeled for pickling. If large cut them in half
and leave the stems on. The best pear for this purpose, also for
canning, is a variety called the "Sickle Pear." It is a small, pulpy
pear of delicious flavor. Throw each pear into cold water as you peel
it. When all are peeled weigh them and allow four pounds and a half of
white sugar to ten pounds of fruit. Put into the kettle with alternate
layers of sugar and half a cup of water and one quart of strong vinegar.
Add stick cinnamon and a few cloves (remove the soft heads). Heat
slowly and boil until tender, then remove them with a perforated
skimmer, and spread upon dishes to cool. Skim the boiling syrup and boil
fifteen minutes longer. Put the pears in glass jars or a large earthen
jar, the former being preferable, and pour the syrup and spices boiling
hot over the fruit. When cold seal.

To one gallon of moderately strong vinegar, add a small handful of
cloves (not ground), several sticks of cinnamon, sugar enough to make
vinegar quite sweet. Take small pears, and with a small pointed knife
remove all blemishes, but do not pare them. Put vinegar on the stove.
When it comes to a boil, fill kettle as full of pears as will boil;
set on back of stove, and boil slowly for three and one-half hours;
fill your cans, and seal while very hot.
