I did this post over the summer and forgot to post it! We don't have Pears in season in January, although I wish we did!
I had somehow thought that Pear Butter contained actual butter, luckily my Mother In Law explained otherwise. While we were on a family Peach Picking trip I also picked up a few pears. They were getting ripe and I had zero time to do much with them. I stopped by my Mother In Laws house and she was busy making Pear Butter, so I decided I would do the same.
It is actually quite easy and very Delicious. Being the wild child I am, I added a few extra ingredients to make it special!
6 pears, peeled and core removed, cut into chunks
1/4 cup Vanilla sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
Place your pears in a saucepan on low heat (do not add water or any liquid), add the sugar and spices and let simmer until it has reduced and become thick (this may take several hours)
Place in a blender or use an immersion blender until smooth
It will keep in the fridge for a few weeks, put on just about anything from ice cream to toast!
