7 cups ripe pears, cored and chopped (8 large pears)
4 cups sugar
1 can (15 1/4-oz) crushed pineapple in juice, drained

Place pears in a food processor and proccess until finely chopped.

Combine the pears and the sugar in a large heavy-duty Dutch oven.  Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, over medium heat and cook until sugar is dissolved.  Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, 45 minutes or until mixture is thickened.

Add pineapple to the mixture and cook at a simmer for 5 minutes. 

Spoon the mixture into hot jars and add lids to seal.  Be sure to refrigerate any jars that do not seal and keep refrigerated after opening.
