Hope this helps anyone,I followed the recipe. and everything was fine, so I thought I would let you know, I feel you must stir all the time after the simmering, and make sure it comes to a boil while stirring before finishing that step. I did have to let my pears coo more than the 10 minutes, I let them cook 20, because I wanted to be able to use a potato masher to cut then in to chucks. and they did not get soft enough till then, I then followed the recipe. making sure that I contuined to stir and the pears boiled, add the pectin and 1/2 tsp of butter, due to the box said to.(however my box was 1.75 oz of sure jell.) I then stirred until it came to a complete boil while stirring, ( I had my sugar, measured and in 1 bowl, and my brown sugar and spices( which I added 2 tsp cimnnamon because I like it.lol)in another bowl. poured in sugar and when it came back to a boil while still stirring set timer ro 1 minute. took off heat and poured brown sugar and spices in and contiuned to stir.I did keep my jars in the boiling water so they was hot when I put the pears in. put lids on and put back into the boiling water for 10 minutes. I have not tried them yet, but felt I would go ahead and do my review because taste was not a problem, Mine did not have a lot of juice and set fine, did make the amount stated.
