Pineapple Pear Syrup

I had some pears on hand so I decided to try a new recipe yesterday called Pear Honey.
It was a fairly simple recipe for canning (love that!) calling for only three ingredients.
It took me about 20 minutes with the food processor to get everything together and then 3 hours later I was canning and done.

You will need:
8 cups pears, peeled and grated (in food processor)
4 cups sugar
1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained.

Mix together in large stockpot and let simmer for several hours.
Mixture will become syrup like and golden colored.
  It looked more like syrup than honey - so I renamed it.  It is very sweet and delicious!!  Perfect for a special breakfast topping over french toast, pancakes or waffles. 

When ready pour into warm pint jars, seal tightly and place them in a water bath canner with boiling water for 20 minutes.  Remove and let cool.  You can have these on your pantry shelf for up to one year if they have sealed properly.
 They most likely won't last that long in your home though - look at that beautiful golden color!
I thought that some of these would make perfect little "Hello Fall!" gifts to friends.
 Add a bit of twine and a tag and it couldn't be cuter!
