okay, I knew making this that there was a chance of it being syrupy (reading the reviews) but, as it's the only pear jelly recipe I thought I would give it a try. Sure enough, very thin...so, after asking my mothers I have come up with this for future readers. 1. I used liquid pectic (3oz). My mother swears that gramma used to use powdered because she thought it also contained geletin. so, I'm wondering if the other syrupy reviewers used liquid? Also, the recipe did not state whether I should mash the pears, so basically I have pears in syrup. Taste pretty good though, which is why I gave it two stars. Will use on pancakes or something. *Updated* mashed the pears and recanned. worked out much better. So, mash your pears or you get syrup.
