wash & boil the jars & canning lid & tops..........keep them in hot water until needed.................use a glass bowl with some lemon juice in the water to keep the color.......skin them and take out the seeds..........cut them into 4 cut and put into the water...................depends on how big they to how many will fit into a quart jar...........so take one jar and start putting the pears inside........make a hot mix of 2 cups sugar & 4 cups water.......after you get the jar full...leave 1 inch space in jar.......carefully pour that hot mix into the glass jar..remember to leave that 1 inch space.........I let it cool off a little and put it from the pot into a container that I can pour over the fruit in the jar.  wipe the mouth of the jar off with paper towels real good or the cap won't seal and put the screw lid on but not super tight.......when you do the last container.  do a water bath........put those jars gently in a deep pot and put a lid on the top of the pot and  keep the water  about 3/4 full.............put the jars in the not heated water.....don't add cold water the jars will crack..........boil quarts for 25 minutes..........pts for 20 minutes...................you might hear some of the tops snap.......I use a special lifter for canning as those jars are super hot.  The tops should be dented in......take them out carefully don't hit anything moving them.............and I put them on a tray and let them cool down....some more will snap closed..............next morning I check to see if all the jar are sealed.......now is the time to turn the tops tight....................any that have not sealed......you can keep in the refrigerator and use them up.....Good luck with this.
