A question about a recipe: Pear Relish

I have a question about the recipe "Pear Relish" from MrsWheelbarrow. Can this recipe be canned safely? Thx!

Based on what I have read, http://pickyourown.org/pearscanning.htm

My guess is No. Here is my reasoning and it's found in the link to can pears: This relish is not cooked. If you tried to can it, you would essentially be cold packing or raw packing. Neither the USDA nor Ball Blue book recommends nor has a recipe for cold packing or raw packing pears.
