I found the lemon to be a bit strong and the pear too subtle, but I liked the ginger and peach.

REALLY good jam. I made a few modifications...I used my blender to really chop everything up and mix together. I only used one cup of sugar and once everything was put together, I simmered the concoction for approx 10 minutes to thicken. Next time I think I will simmer even longer. Everyone loved it!
