Question Cranberry pear sauce, too runny!

This recipe is a favorite. I made a change in ingredients and substituted 1 cup of honey for 1 (of the 2 C) of sugar. The sauce is too runny/soft.
How can I firm it up? Thinking pectin. I would hate to have to start over, buy new ingredients.

Pectin would be perfect.

Am thinking pectin too, or some gelatin might work. Sounds really yummy! You could also use it as a syrup as is, or try some pectin or whatever with just a portion.

I made this one from a Penzy's catalog last year and it was a hit, it was really excellent! Make it a day ahead and the cranberries mellow and everything just comes together!
