    Sharon123's Note:

    This is so simple and so good. Update: I have changed the sugar ingredient amount from 5 1/2 cups to 2 1/2 cups-5 cups because it is so sweet, you don't need all the amount. Enjoy!

      Love this. I doubled the recipe, but cut the sugar WAY down. I had a 6 qt pan-full of peeled, sliced pears from our old Keiffer and Orient pear trees. I used 4 cups of white sugar, and it was plenty. I sliced a big lemon really thin and threw that in - watch the seeds - and added about 1/8 tsp. of salt. Cooked it for 40 minutes, mashed everything with an old school potato masher and it was perfect! My jars are in the water bath right now. I can't wait for a cool morning with hot biscuits and this pear goodness! Thanks for the inspiration.

      I made this as part of a gift basket for my parents. Dad finally had it because "they had run out of all the normal jelly". He thought it was great, but it was a bit sweeter than jelly. "It must have been the honey." He said he would like another jar if it wasn't too expensive because of the honey. I just laughed and said we could handle it...and for the book, he was complimenting on a grumpy old man day:). This year I decided to try it with less sugar...3 cups. This was more to our taste at my house, Dad hasn't had a chance to rate it yet.

      this would get 5 star - except for the sweetness. After reading others' reviews I took it down from 5.5 cups of sugar to 2.5. Still insanely sweet - almost overpowering the lovely fragrant pear. Also I only got 5 half pint jars but super easy, delicious and will definitely make it again!
