      Title: Pears - halved
 Categories: Fruits, Canning
      Yield: 1 Recipe
 
 
  Quantity: An average of 17-1/2 pounds is needed per canner load of 7
  quarts; an average of 11 pounds is needed per canner load of 9 pints.
  A bushel weighs 50 pounds and yields 16 to 25 quarts--an average of
    2-1/2    pounds per quart.
  
  Quality: Choose ripe, mature fruit of ideal quality for eating fresh
  or cooking.
  
  Procedure: Wash and peel pears. Cut lengthwise in halves and remove
  core. A melon baller or metal measuring spoon is suitable for coring
  pears. To prevent discoloration, keep pears in an ascorbic acid
  solution. Prepare a very light, light, or medium syrup or pack pears
  in apple juice, white grape juice, or water. Raw packs make poor
  quality pears. Boil drained pears 5 minutes in syrup, juice, or
  water. Fill jars with hot fruit and cooking liquid, leaving 1/2-inch
  headspace. Adjust lids and process. Processing directions for canning
  pears in a boiling-water, a dial, or a weighted-gauge canner are
  given in Table 1, Table 2, and Table 3.
