Recipe of the Week
Alice Brantley Yeager
1 qt. of ground Kieffer pears (peel and core before grinding)
3 cups sugar
juice of 1 lemon
grated rind of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
Boil mixture in stainless steel, porcelain, or graniteware pot stirring frequently until thickened (Do not use aluminum). When desired thickness is achieved, immediately put in hot, sterilized jars and seal. Remember that this is a spread and should not be overcooked to a jelly stage.
A tasty variation is to substitute orange and nutmeg for lemon and ginger.
