Creme de Menthe Pears

Creme de Menthe Pears


  • 5 pounds pears (about 10 large)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • 1 tablespoon fruit protector
  • 1 1/2 cup creme de menthe


Peel, core and halve pears. Bring sugar, water, food coloring, and fruit protector to the boil. Add creme de menthe and stir well. Add pears and simmer covered over low heat 3 to 5 minutes, just to heat pears through. Put the pears, cut side down, into hot jars, and pack. Fill with hot cooking liquid. Release air bubbles and clean rims. Process pint jars for 20 minutes in a BWB. Makes 5 pints.
