I tried making pear jelly this morning, following the instructions on the pectin packet to the letter (as Fanny Farmer had instructed me to do). I now have four 16-ounce jars of pear syrup.

what did I do wrong? Can I boil the syrup with more pectin/more sugar/etc., and turn it into jelly?

  1. Quince syrup (basically thin jelly) is one of the nicest things you can put on pancakes and french toast. Bet pear syrup would be good too!

      Sounds good -- or perhaps you could use it making syrup omelets?

        Good advice, and precisely what I intended to do with it. Intended, that is, until, some hours later, I noticed that it had set up nicely. I guess it takes quite a bit longer to fully gel than I had expected.
