    We really loved this! Thanks for the great recipe. I did not have pear nectar, but had a few extra over ripe pears that I just blended up and added. - 11/12/10

  • I love the sound of this, and will be trying it - though I will probably use apple juice instead of pear nectar. - 11/18/11

  • I made this with pears from my freezer. There was enough juice, once the pears had thawed, to replace the nectar. It worked out great. I didn't have raisins on hand, but I don't think that the recipe suffered without them. I can't wait to try it with the pears from my tree in a week, or so. - 8/16/10
