Canning Pears Poached in Red Wine        
Poached pears in wine are a favorite of ours and are easy to can at home using
this recipe! We put in a little cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. Upon opening,
drain and reheat the wine to make a syrup that is delicious when drizzled over
the fruit and vanilla ice cream.

Remember to follow food safety instructions and select blemish free fruit. We
always prefer organic fruit without pesticides. We add lemon juice to most
recipes to help protect the color.
