4 lb Bartlett pears, unpeeled,

1/2 c Dry white wine
2 tb Fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 c Sugar
4 Orange slices

of water covers tops of jars. Cover pot and boil rapidly 15 minutes.
Remove jars from pot. Cool to room temperature. Press center of each
lid. If stays down, jar is sealed. (If lid pops us, store butter in
refrigerator.) Store in cool dry place up to 1 year. Refrigerate
