Pears: Wash, core, and chop pears; put in pot. Add 1 cup water per quart of pears. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10–15 minutes; stirring occasionally with potato masher and mashing pears. Line a colander with cheesecloth and strain hot pears into a large bowl. Allow the last drops to drip overnight.
Apples: Wash, quarter, and core apples. Put them through a juicer.Add the pure apple juice to the pear juice. Wonderful hot or cold. You can also freeze juice and thaw in refrigerator.
Cook’s Note: Apple-Pear Juice is very sweet and I add cubes of current juice to cut the sweetness. Currents ripen early in summer, so juice them like the pear directions and freeze in ice cube trays. After frozen, store the cubes in plastic bags. Add cubes to your apple-pear juice.
