Making Pear Cider With Help from Tillie
Larry got the equipment set up while I rounded up jars and got things ready in the house. Tillie was excited by all the hubbub and helped by being completely underfoot the entire time.
This year I brought the cider inside, heated it to boiling, poured it into canning jars and then processed it in the water bath canner for 10 minutes. We decided last year that we prefer the canned cider--so much easier to use that way. No added sugar, no added anything--just juiced pears. That's the best part of cider--100% natural.
