This recipe is wonderful! The only thing I did differently was to add lemon juice instead of liqueur (I didn't have any). - 14 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious! I also used lemon juice instead of liqueur. Next time, I'll reduce the amount of lemon juice slightly so the lemon flavor doesn't overpower the pears. - 27 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Jenne, If you use jelly jars and seal them they should store for several months on the pantry shelf. Once the seal is broken it should be stored in the refrigerator and should be good for at least a couple of weeks. Thanks for checking out my recipe. Hope you get to try it and enjoy it as much as my family did. Jerim - 26 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
