    1       qt           Cider vinegar

   Any good preserving pear may be used. Slice and remove
   core or pickle whole; the latter method is preferred
   when Sickel pears are used. Peel pears. Put spices in
   a small cheese cloth bag and add to the vinegar and
   sugar and bring to a boil. Add pears and cook until
   tender. The pears will look clear when tender. Remove
   them with a spoon and place them in sterilized jars.
   Boil the syrup until it becomes thick, the pour it
   over pears and seal. Source:  Pennsylvania Dutch Cook
