My children made this for the county fair. It took 1st place! These are very good. Ours didn't set up as much as I would have liked, however I have a elec. stove and I think they did not cook down enough. Lot's of fun and Very Good to eat. Thanks!
turned out very good, freinds said the best pear preserves they ever ate
My preserves did not firm up as much as i thought they should. They turned out more like pears in heavy syrup.
I omitted the lemon juice, but added a can of crushed pineapple with juice. YUM!! PS - Thanks for the tip about inverting jars - hadn't heard that one before, but it works!!
