I had access to a number of pears this year, and so decided to try my hand at pear butter. I don’t have a slow cooker, so I made it in the oven using this Farm Girl recipe.
First we had to use a food mill, which I borrowed from someone at work. It got the job done amazingly well, once we figured out the technical aspects of it!
It’s such a simple recipe, I added some cinnamon because I love the flavour, and about a 1/4 cup of sugar. That’s it! I made 5 small jars, and have enough pears ripe again to make the same this week. I might add vanilla this time. It smells amazing in the house as it’s cooking, as well.
PS Remember the bean chutney? Well after some time mellowing, I ate the jar in the fridge. It was awesome!! My favourite is with a grilled cheese sandwich.
