      I live in the Willamette river valley where in late summer pears and plums are plentiful and CHEAP! I bought a ton of plums at a local farm and my own pear tree showered us with bartlets. I was looking for a new way to "put up" all this fruit and so was delighted to find this recipe! I did cut the suger to 4 1/2 cups. I find that it makes a looser jam, but one that's still plenty thick for toast. I do this with all my jam recipes as I believe it allows more of the fruit flavor to come through (particularly with pear jam- if there's too much suger it tastes like glorified honey). I also found that if I mash the fruit with a potato masher just before pouring it into the jars that the fruit becomes suspended or more evenly distributed throughout the jam (as opposed to just floating on top) while remaining acceptably "chunky." My husband has proclaimed this his new favorite and at the rate he's putting it away I'll be lucky if my supply will take us through till next season. Thanks for such a great recipe!

      Very tasty, and goes together quickly with just a few ingredients. Last year was the first time I had made any kind of jam or jelly and this was easy enough for a beginner with delicious results. The flavors really come through.

      This came out a beautiful pink color. I also cut down the sugar to 4 1/2 cups and added another cup of plums. I got 6 half pints out of this. Next time I will make two batches. This will be a great addition to out Xmas baskets. Thank you for the recipe.
