Soothing, comforting and delicious. Can also be used as a special appetizer - Top baked Brie or Camembert cheese with this jelly; serve with mini toasts, pear slices and walnuts.

This is a fantastic recipe, and the serving suggestion is spot on! Both the pear and chamomile tastes come through and balance well. Neither overpowers the other. This could also be used as a sweet jelly on bread. Delicious! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
