I'm not adding any stars because I couldn't get the pectin and since I had the apple and pears I made a fruit sauce that is delicious. I used 2 lg Bartlett pears and a Granny Smith apple. They were whizzed in the food processor and then simmered with 2-3 Tbsp of water. Once cooked down, thickened and off the stove I added 1/4 cup of Splenda and the Amaretto. It's delicious and will be marvelous on toast, pancakes or anything you would use a fruit sauce for. Thanks mary.
