Reviews for Pear Raspberry Jam
"Mine made more then 8 half pint jars. When I tasted the jam the orange zest over powered at first but then the raspberry pear came through. The next time I make this jam I will not use as much orange zest. Set up great."
"Love it...so easy to make."
"Everyone liked this jam but would like to convert it to low sugar. Please let me know how to convert this recipe"
"This is absolutely wonderful. My family loves it. Planning to make if for Christmas give-aways this year. Super easy, came out perfect."
