● 1 kg pears, peeled
● 2 cups water
● 1 kg sugar
● juice of 1 lemon
● peels of half a lemon
Peel the pears, slice in half and remove the seeds.
We can also leave the pears whole, and remove the seeds with a sharp knife.
In a large pot, put the pears with the water and simmer for 10 minutes.
Next, add the sugar and the lemon peels.
Boil for 15 minutes, turn off the heat and leave it overnight.
In the morning, boil so the syrup can reach the desired consistency, about 30-35 minutes.
Just before turning off the heat remove the lemon peels and add the lemon juice and stir.
Allow it to rest and then store in glass sterilized jars.
