INGREDIENTS
3 cups raw sugar
1 cup water
12-20 firm pears, peeled, cored and sliced thinly (16 cups or 4 quarts of sliced pears)
1 lemon, thinly sliced and seeded

DIRECTIONS
Over medium-high heat, bring sugar and water to a boil in a large saucepan.
When sugar is completely dissolved, gently stir in sliced pears and lemon.
Reduce heat to low, so that small bubbles are visible.
Cook uncovered for 4-8 hours, until pears are translucent and syrup is thickened.
Serve immediately or jar and process for storage.
