Homemade Pear Honey

Pear honey is an old recipe that's been passed down through families. We especially like it with hot biscuits and butter. It's also good on pound cake or even ice cream. Make sure the pears you use are very firm. —Charlotte McDaniel, Jacksonville, Alabama

    This recipe turned out really well. But be aware that the texture is more of a jam than honey. The name is a bit of a misnomer, but still tasty. Also, it makes a ton. So I hope you have lots of biscuits to eat.
