6 pounds pears - (to 7)
8 cups water
3 cups sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
8 whole cloves
3/4 cup orange marmalade
1 cup dried apricots

Peel pears, cut into halves and core. Treat fruit to prevent darkening.
Combine water, sugar, lemon juice and cloves in a large saucepot. Bring
to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.

Drain pears. Cook pears one layer at a time in syrup 15 minutes, turning
frequently. Remove pears from syrup. Add marmalade and dried apricots to
syrup; bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Pack hot pears into hot jars,
alternating with apricots, leaving 1/2-inch headspace.

Carefully ladle hot syrup over fruit, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove
air bubbles with a nonmetallic spatula. Wipe jar rim clean. Place lid on
jar with sealing compound next to glass. Screw band down evenly and
firmly just until a point of resistance is met -- fingertip tight.

Process 25 minutes in a boiling-water canner. At elevations higher than
1,000 feet, boil 2 additional minutes for each additional 1,000 feet

This recipe yields about 3 quarts.
