There are not many things more satisfying to farmers and gardeners alike than a kitchen pantry full of home-canned fruits and vegetables. By skipping the grocery store and using your own homegrown harvest you are not only saving money, but you are using a healthy alternative to store-bought, factory-canned ingredients. Make use of your summer’s bounty with this set of canning recipes from Capper’s Farmer.


• 5-2/3 cups water
• 1-1/3 cups white syrup
• 3-1/4 cups sugar
• Pears, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, seeded and stemmed


1. In a stockpot, bring water, syrup and sugar to boiling.

2. Meanwhile, pack pears into hot, sterilized jars.

3. Fill jars with hot syrup mixture, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Put on lids and rings, and process in a hot water bath for 30 minutes.
