Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a VERY old recipe that Granny (Clema) Henson made often. It will be bright red and taste very sweet and cinnamony.

Due to it's candy like flavor, I added 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon powder to see how it tasted and like it a lot better. I now use the exact recipe only add the cinnamon and since we have 3 pear trees I use our pears instead of apples which turn out wonderful. It's SUPER yummy!
