Fruit may taste best fresh, but if long-term is what you need, here are some recipes.
Strawberry Syrup Do you fancy other flavors of fruit syrup? Try raspberries or blackberries instead of strawberries.
Minted Pears For the best flavor, choose ripe pears to prepare this mint-flavored home-canned fruit recipe. If the pears are too firm, place them in a paper bag and allow them to stand at room temperature for a few days. When ripe, they'll yield to gentle pressure.
Preserved Lemons These showy lemons won't stay bottled up for long after you sample the citrus boost they provide to your favorite dishes.
Spiced Apple Rings For rings, use apples with a maximum diameter of 2-1/2 inches and preserve in wide-mouth canning jars. If using larger apples, cut them into eight wedges.
Rosy Fruit Cocktail As you cut and cube the peaches, pears, and grapes, dip them in ascorbic-acid color keeper to prevent discoloration.
