Bartlett pears are best but if you use hard winter pears, it is a good idea to steam the prepared pieces first in a preserving kettle. Use small amount of water, cover and steam till fruit is soft. Combine all ingredients and let stand overnight. Next day bring to a boil on top of stove, then to avoid having to stand over it and stirring, place in a 300 degree oven for 1/2 hour or until clear and thick. Jam will turn a lovely amber gold colour. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Yields 20 jelly jars
