    Chef #165326's Note:

    Delightful change from Applesauce. Very juicy with a nice chunky consistency. Not overly sweet. This is my own creation. Of course you don't have to can this recipe, just stop at #9. It is a simple recipe and easy enough to cut down the amount also.

      Great recipe. I did change some seasoning. I only used a 1/4 tsp. cloves and a couple of handfuls of red hots (candies) for the cinnamon flavoring and coloring. I did not use any vanilla or nutmeg. After cooking it all for about 25 minutes, I put it in the blender to make it nice and smooth. Turned out so good and really looks pretty in the jars. Thanks for the recipe. My DH thought it was really good, too.

      I hate to give this review especially in light of the others, however this just didn't work for me. It had too much liquid and just wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

      Great recipe, I did cut back the water to about 3/4 cup. But it's wonderful!!!! We still have pears and my husband wants me to can more. I told him he can help peel the pears.
