Use 5 pounds of pears, not too soft or over-ripe, cut like dice. Cover
with water and boil until tender, then add 5 pounds of sugar. Peel 2
oranges, cut in dice the night before using; let diced orange peel
stand, covered with cold water until morning. Then cook until orange
peel is tender. Add this to the juice and pulp of the two oranges. Add
one pound of seeded raisins and cook all together until thick honey.
Put in glass jars and seal.
