This past week I spent a few days with several of my close girlfriends. It was so nice to get out again and get in a lot of laughter! These ladies have been such a blessing to me! On the last day three of us went down and picked some pears from one of my friends pear trees. Lovely natural organic pears.
So I was super happy to get busy in my kitchen creating a bunch of different pear dishes. Since they are in season, I will be sharing these recipes with you over the next few days.
I started off with Pear Butter. So easy to make and so yummy!
10 pears, peeled, cored and cut quarters.
3/4 cup brown sugar (or agave or sucanat, you can also use 1/4 cup stevia if going for sugar free)
1 cinnamon stick
pinch of sea salt
Put all the ingredients into a crock pot (slow cooker).
Cook on low heat for 4-6 hours.
Remove the cinnamon stick, let cool slightly then puree to desired consistency. Keep refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.
