PEAR PRESERVES 
12 c. sliced pears
9 c. sugar
1/2 fresh lemon, sliced thin

Cover pear slices with sugar and let stand overnight. Enough liquid will be produced to allow cooking without adding water. Stir to mix pears, sugar, and juice. Add lemon slices. Bring to simmer and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until pears are tender, clear, and caramel colored and liquid is consistency of honey. This will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Pour preserves into sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headroom and seal with sterilized lids.
