Pear Marmalade

3 pounds unpeeled pears; cut fine
3 medium oranges
1 can (14 ounce) crushed pineapple; drained

Squeeze oranges, remove seeds from juice. Put through a food chopper. Measure 2/3 cup sugar to each 1 cup fruit. Place in saucepan and cook until mixture thickens (15 minutes) Pour into hot jars and seal immediately with a layer of melted wax. Let cool and pour another layer of wax over top to seal completely.

Cover with a lid and store in a cool dark place or close jars and store in freezer. If freezing, leave 1 inch head space for expansion. Yield: 6 pints
