As of 2015 Paula Deen offers her pear honey recipe on her website free of charge. Special features such as recipe reviews require a paid membership in The Paula Deen Network.
The pear honey recipe calls for 1 can of pineapple with syrup, 16 cups of chopped pears with the peels removed, 10 cups of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Four pieces of ginger could be substituted for the lemon juice depending on the desired flavor. The recipe requires 12 to 16 sterilized half-pint jars. Making the pear honey involves combining all ingredients in a pot and heating until it thickens before distributing the sweet spread between the jars and sealing while still hot.
