    This was great, I change it some up some. But this is something you really need to try.

    I had never had pear jam before, but decided this year I needed to do something with my pear tree. This recipe was so easy to make and is absolutely delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    I gave it two stars for the taste. I make it today, but it didn't get thick, like I thought it should. I also added a little ginger. It did taste good, but just didn't get thick, or syrupy.

    This is a wonderful recipe, thanks so much for posting it! I had 9 cups of pears, used apple pie spice for seasoning, and because I was worried it wouldn't thicken, threw in an apple for good measure. I used 2 cups sugar and 2 cups whey low. It thickened beautifully after a couple of hours. I did give it a whiz with my emersion blender to smooth it out a bit, but not too much. I was so happy to find a recipe that didn't require pectin so I could cut back on the sugar. Thanks so much! I'm going to try it with peaches next!
