    wife2abadge's Note:

    The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of butter, 3 T brown sugar, and 2 T honey. I thought that would be way too sweet and cut it down. I also used pears in their own juice instead of heavy syrup.

      This is one of our favorite side dishes. I usually throw in the whole can of pears and mix it all up instead of just placing the pears on top.

      wow! This was the star of our Thanksgiving dnner!! I used becel marg instead of butter and splenda brown instead of regular brown sugar. I used fresh pears and so did not have reserved juice, I used orange juice to replace it. Turned out wonderful!! This recipe will become a regular at any special dinner we have from now on!! Absolutely delicious!! thanks for posting.

      This was a yummy side dish which I will make again. I used a very ripe fresh pear for 2 sweet potatoes and it was still just as good as the original recipe.
