When you can pears, you’re left with an enormous pile of cores, skins, and under- and overripe fruit. Don’t throw them away! As peach skins and pits become peach pit jelly, pear skins and cores become pear conserve and a phenomenally beautiful pear jelly.
I love these directions for simple homemade sauerkraut, without the use of special equipment. It is very healthy and doesn't taste tinny like canned kraut. You need to taste this before you say you don't like saurkraut.
