The pumpkin butter I made this week turned out pretty well, but the pear butter? It was amazing! Pears are at the top of my favorite fruits list, so learning how to make this, the queen of all toast toppings, was really a necessity. I found this recipe at recipe4living.com, and began with Bosc Pears which I got for free. Bosc is great for cooking and baking. The flesh is firmer than most varieties and has a sweet-spiced flavor.Yum!
I followed the recipe pretty closely, but did reduce the sugar because pears are so sweet already. I canned them, which I’ve never done before, so yeah for me acquiring a new skill! Of course, I’ll be popping a jar open for breakfast tomorrow.
