    Hello guys. To your attention the pear and lemon compote. This is not a completely ordinary combination, it will allow the noble pear to play in a completely new way, and the lemon will sound very unusual for us here. But traditionally, we will talk about the recipe itself a little later, namely after the historical perspective. True, it is not a fact that history will tell us exactly who invented the pear compote and its recipe, but we will be able to find out about the compote in general.

    History of the dish

    The very name compote came to us around the 18th century from the French word compote. It was in France that compotes were first cooked. Moreover, compotes are still sold in French stores, although the contents of cans with such an inscription are ordinary fruit puree. In our latitudes, compote, and no matter what its main ingredient: pear, apple or lemon, is a sweet dessert drink based on fruits or berries. It is such a compote, friends, based on which we will cook a pear with lemon today, but in general such recipes for the winter are very diverse, so we will return to them more than once. For now, let's start.

    Ingredients for 2 liters of workpiece:

    • Pear - 600 g
    • Sugar - 200 g
    • Lemon - ½ pc.


    1. Wash pears and lemon. We sterilize cans and lids in a convenient way.

    2. Cut the pears into arbitrary small pieces, removing the tails and the seed section.

      Peel the pear from seeds and tails and cut into pieces

    3. Cut the lemon into circles - we need 4 circles. Cut off the yellow crust with a white part from the circles to the maximum - this will avoid bitterness in the final piece.

      We will also cut the lemon into pieces, we need 4 of these, and peel each of them

    4. Fill each sterilized jar to 1/3 of its volume with pear pieces. Put 2 lemon circles in each jar with pears.

      Put about a third of pear slices into a sterile jar and put some slices of lemon to each too

    5. Fill each jar with boiling water to the top, cover with lids, and leave for 10 minutes.

      Top up the jars with boiling water and leave the compote for 10 minutes

    6. Then pour the water from the cans into a saucepan, bring to a boil, pour boiling water into the cans again, leave the cans for 10 minutes again, then pour the water from the cans into the pan, add all the sugar, bring to a boil.

      After 10 minutes, drain the water, boil and fill the jars again for 10 minutes, drain again, add sugar and bring to a boil again

    7. Pour the boiling syrup into the jars.

      As soon as the syrup boils, we pour it to the cans

    8. We seal hermetically with lids, turn the glass cans upside down, wrap them up with a thick blanket, leave to cool slowly overnight.

      We roll up the glass cans, turn them over on the lids, wrap them up until they cool down and put them in a warm place

    9. In the morning we will send the finished workpiece to the basement for long-term storage.

      As soon as the compote cools down, we lower it to the basement
