Candied ginger-root, \1/2 pounds, Pears, 8 pounds,

Granulated sugar, 8 pounds, Lemons, 4.

Pare the fruit and cut and slice into small pieces. Slice the ginger, and place the pear, ginger, and sugar on the fire, and boil slowly for 1 hour. Do not put water with it unless the pears are very dry.

While this is boiling put on the lemons, in cold water and boil until very tender; then cut them up, taking out the seeds, and cut them fine. After the pears have boiled an hour add them to the lemons, and boil together for another full hour.

Put in jelly tumblers.
