Pinned recipe: Pear slices preserved in a light syrup… and whiskey.

14 Sep

The original post I bookmarked from Well Preserved.

Followed the instructions, but added a couple cloves, a wee dash of vanilla, and 1/2 Tbsp Bärenjäger honey liqueur. I also added an ‘e’ to ‘whiskey’ in the recipe title because that’s what is on the Jameson’s bottle; don’t mistake me for an expert in whisk(e)y semantics.

Whiskey'd pears! In a jar!

Edit: So, the original recipe as made provides a very simple sweet pear flavor. My first batch additions (honey, vanilla, a couple cloves cooked in the syrup) added a little depth but still ended up staying pretty close to sweet pear. I made another 6 pints for a local swap  following the original recipe, but adding 1T of the honey liqueur, 2-3 cloves and 1 star anise per pint to attempt to really spice it up. Hoping it’s not overkill. We’ll see when I crack one of the extras open this winter!
