How to Make It

  1. Bring first 12 ingredients to a boil in a large Dutch oven. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 2 hours or until pear is tender. Stir in liquid pectin; return mixture to a boil, and boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and skim off foam with a metal spoon.

  2. Pour hot chutney into hot, sterilized jars, filling each to 1/4 inch from top; wipe jar rims. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw on bands.

  3. Process jars in boiling-water bath 5 minutes.

  4. Note: If chutney is not processed in a water bath, you may store sealed jars in refrigerator up to 1 week.
