      This pear sauce is fabulous!! I was using some sort of small pears off of my neighbor's pear tree, so I couldn't really tell if I was using the proper amount for the recipe. After cooking the pears I just added cinnamon and sugar to taste. I ended up with 5 quart size jars and three pint size jars. I love cinnamon, so I think I probably used a couple tablespoons, but only about 1/3 cup of sugar since the pears were very sweet on their own. I served some to a dinner guest and my kids over vanilla ice cream for dessert tonight and they all loved it. This is going to be my staple pear sauce recipe from now on.

      I am with CarolAT---WOW! This recipe was right on target with ingredients and cooking times. For personal preference the sugar was reduced to 1/2 cup and I only used 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. The cooked pears were processed in the Vita-Mix. Thanks for posting the canning instructions in the recipe.

      Wow, this recipe is very good. Not too sweet and just a hint of cinnamon really makes this a keeper recipe. I had a great crop of pears from my pear tree this year, and I wanted to be able to use them before the birds nibbled at too many of them. I doubled the recipe and used 18-20 lbs. pounds of pears, added three teaspoons of cinnamon, and ran my cooked pears through my food mill to get a smoother texture. I ended up with 7 pints of delicious pear sauce. My granddaughter just loves applesauce so I know she will really enjoy this pear sauce too. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
