    In this recipe you have used 3 tablespoons of sugar which in my country translates to 8 teaspoons or a teaspoon and a half of sugar for each pear. I would be worried about what that will do to the end glycemic index of the sauce. Wouldn’t you be better substituting something like xylitol which has a fraction of the insulin response effect that sugar has? According to the table each serving has 32g of sugar which is huge.
