If you are going to store this pear honey unrefrigerated, you should process the filled jars in a hot water bath canner for 10 minutes. Otherwise you risk food poisoning.

Pear Honey

This sounds really good, but can you give us ideas on storage. Do you put it in canning jars. How long does it keep? I'm assuming you refrigerate it? Thanks for your recipe and your help. (10/08/2009)
