Do you use the whole orange and lemon, peel and all?

Hi mollyann - Typically jams are made with a decent amount of sugar. This recipe uses sugar substitute to cut down on the calories. You could certainly try using real sugar if you'd like. If you do, please let us know how it turns out! -Editors of FaveHealthyRecipes

5 cups of sugar substitute, what is that? 5 cups of Splenda that doesn't sound right for 3 pounds of ripe pears. can you use real sugar,?
