Bosc Pears 2 Ways of Goodness

First batch of Bosc pears we cleaned cut in half pitted then cold packed the halves in wide mouth quarts. Then in a large wet measuring cup we add 1 ½ cups of Berentzen Pear Schnapps, 2 cups white sugar, 6 cups water, and 5 drops of blue coloring. Filled the jars with the syrupy dropped in raisins, and put lids on. Water-bathed for 20 minutes and ended up with 5 quart jars.


Second batch of Bosc pears cut, cleaned, and packed halves in quarts. Then in a large wet measuring cup we add 1 ½ cups of Ginger Spiced Brandy, 2 shots worth of Buttershots, 2 cups white sugar, 6 cups water, 2 table spoons fresh grated ginger, and 5 drops of red coloring. Filled the jars with the syrupy dropped in raisins, and put lids on. Water-bathed for 20 minutes and ended up with 5 quart jars.
