Reviews for Plum-Kissed Pear Jam
"This was easy and it tastes great! I wasn't sure what to do with the excess plums and pears,but this was great. I like the combination of the two fruits together."
"This was a great recipe to use up to autumn crops both bursting at the same time. My family will be enjoying it all winter. Thanks for sharing!"
