A bag of pears is a lot to get through before they spoil. So, I decided to simply can them, in a light sugar syrup, with a few pear-loving spices thrown in for good measure. It's an easy way to preserve the fruit when it's at its ripest.
Preserved lemons take minutes to make, but they take weeks to cure. There is, however, a compromise, a way to enjoy something pretty close to the authentic preserved lemon experience in much less time. Via NY Times.
