Pear Sauce

What did we do with all of our pears? Well, we dehydrated some of them. Now we have a big bag full of dehydrated pears, and we shall see what happens to those later...

But for the remainder of the pear bounty: pear sauce.

Making pear sauce is like making apple sauce. Only with pears, you see.

So you get a whole giant big bowl of pears. These pears need to be peeled, cored, stemmed, and roughly chopped. It looks like a lot of work, but that's because it involves a lot of standing and repetitive motions.

I got maybe twenty to twenty five pears, and I added the juice of one medium lemon, and a half of a cinnamon stick. They were so sweet that I didn't need to add any sugar.

Then, you cook...

...and cook...

...and cook down the pears into a delicious concentrate. I hit mine with the immersion blender at the end so it would be a smooth consistency. Nothing wrong with chunky, this is entirely a personal preference.

We ended up with about 4 cups of sauce. I froze half, and we had some of it on our oatmeal this morning. It was delicious!

  1. Oh wow! That looks so good! I've tried plum sauce and love it, so this pear sauce sounds intriguing.
