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
