Pears and apples are the fruits of September. Our apple tree did not produce a large crop this year, so we are just eating right off the tree rather than preserving them in any way. They are big, juicy and crisp!
We don’t have a pear tree but I have a couple of sources. Last week-end I made pear sauce and this week-end it will be pear butter. The only real difference is the thickness, the pear butter needs more time to cook down than the sauce. I love pear sauce in my oatmeal, and pear butter is delicious on English muffins!
