Pickled pears

I tried making my own using Delias recipe but when I came to use them they didn't taste right, like they were fermented . Any ideas what would cause this or where I went wrong ?

Pickled Pears

Hello Gravy Queen,

Its so disappointing when you have waited for a preserve to mature that the results are not as they should be.

If the pears have fermented there may have been some bacteria present to cause it. This could have been on the lids or in the jars.

We haven’t made these for a while but ones that we have made have kept really well in the cupboards in the test kitchen.

I hope you have had a good weekend apart from the pears that is.
