Recipe by Dreamgoddess
I love pears, so I'm always looking for new recipes using them. I found this one in an old cookbook that my Mom has. I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds interesting...bet this might be really good with biscuits or maybe pancakes. I'm not really sure why it's called Pear "Honey", cause there's not a drop of honey in it! Since I haven't made this one, I'm guessing on the prep and cook time.

It's called Pear Honey because the finished product is amber, like raw honey. Since pears are very mild flavored, and with the addition of pineapple and lemon, you don't really taste pears. Instead, it tastes like a fruity honey. If you like a thicker jam consistency, bring it to the gel point (about 220 degrees), stirring constantly. This produces a darker, thicker jam.
- 3 lbs ripe pears, peeled and cored
- 1 cup diced pineapple or 1 cup crushed pineapple
- 1 grated lemon, juice and rind of
- 5 cups sugar
