Recipe by RConley

I made this recipe by experimenting with several other pear jam recipes. It turned out really good so I decided to post.

Very easy and yummy. Next time, I will try adding oranges as some have suggested, as it is very sweet as is. Pears are my favorite non-berry fruit, and turned them into a delicious marmalade.
