Pears In Vanilla Syrup Recipe






Pare ripe pears and cut them in halves lengthwise.
Cook in a heavy sirup made in the proportion of 2 cup of sugar to 3 cup.s of water cooked until clear.
When the pears are clear and tender, remove from the sirup and pack in jars.
Boil the sirup down for a few minutes and flavor with vanilla, taking care not to use too much of the extract—just enough to give a faint, indescribable bouquet is sufficient.
Then pour the sirup over the pears and! seal.
When serving, a maraschino cherry or a bit of preserved ginger may be placed in each half-pear, or one may use a home-preserved strawberry.
