For any inspiration of what you can “put by”, I highly recommend joining the yahoo group called Food Preservation Drying Canning and More. I got this recipe from the file section there.
Zesty Cranberry Pear Dressing
- 4 cups peeled and chopped pears (1 kg fresh)
- 1 - 12 ounce package cranberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 1/2 tsp dried chili peppers
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 cups corn syrup
- 1/2 cup white wine or water
- 1 package fruit pectin
My batch was just shy of the 6 jars called for, but now I have 5 jars for my pantry!
