4 cups pear sliced thin

and add applesauce)

1 cup chopped pecans

Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar with pears. Let stand 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Mix the other 1/2 cup sugar with rest of the dry ingredients. Add oil and eggs then stir in pears (pear juice will be the only liquid) bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. (Put foil on top to prevent burning)
