I'm not a big fan of pears either, which is why I went with the lime-ginger version. They are in season, though.

It's pretty good. Better than the pears would be alone, I believe.

Next time, though, I'll use more ginger (I already doubled what the recipe called for, but I have a passion for ginger)

No - preserves, like jam.

Sweet, but the limes both A) keep the fruit from browning, and B) add a bit of depth to the flavor (which, IMHO, is what pears lack).

The ginger is just good with pretty much anything...
