    Pear Butter

    2 Quarts Pear Pulp (about 20 medium)
    4 cups Sugar
    1/3 cup Orange Juice
    1 teaspoon grated Orange Rind
    1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

    To prepare pulp: Quarter & core pears. Cook until soft, adding only enough water to prevent sticking. Press through a sieve or food mill. Measure pulp.

    Add remaining ingredients; cook until thick, about 35 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4 - inch head space. Adjust caps.

    Process pints & quarts 10 minutes in boiling water bath. Yield: about 4 pints.
