This Pear Butter Recipe is great to make when you have an abundance of pears. I also like to make pear sauce, and pear pie! Mm, I might just enjoy pear pie more than apple pie.
The boys devoured an entire jar of Pear Butter. This morning they had it on my homemade butter biscuits for breakfast this morning! Holy Moly! I will definitely need more. They also love to put strawberry jam and beautyberry jelly on their biscuits. There’s nothing like homemade jam!
About The Pear Butter Recipe
The spices in this recipe is what makes it “pear butter”. If you leave those spices out all you’re left with is “pear sauce”. We all love applesauce, but if you haven’t had fresh pear sauce, you should definitely try it! You can use the recipe below to make pear sauce by just leaving out the spices.
The kids loved both the pear butter and the pear sauce, and so did I. We love to eat the pear butter on toast, biscuits, pancakes, and even in our oatmeal!
