PICKLED PEARS. MRS. F. E. BLAKE.
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.
