Bring to a slow boil over medium/high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Process pears in food processor until diced fine and then add pears to apple mixture. Stir in bringing to a slow boil again. Add lemon and stir thoroughly. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 packet of gelatin at a time until completely dissolved.
