Canning Pears with No Added Sugar
Fill a good-sized pan with unsweetened apple juice and get it simmering.
Core, peel and quarter your pears and put them in a bowl with lemon juice to keep them from browning.
As your bowl gets full, use a slotted spoon to transfer the pear quarters to the simmering apple juice.
After a moment, when the pears are warmed, put them into your hot sterilized jars and topped them with the hot apple juice. Use a spatula to get the air bubbles out, and add half a cinnamon stick to any of the pears you'd like to be cinnamon pears, seal and process.
