Pears are still plentiful this time of year, and turning them into a fruit butter is a fun easy gift for the holidays. The heavenly scent of the butter cooking down just adds to the holiday cheer. Of course, you are going to want to save one or two jars for yourself.
This can either be a one or two day process. If you start early in the morning, you can work on your Pear Butter throughout the day while you get other chores done around the house. You can also start cooking down the sauce, turn it off and let it cool, than continue to cook the next day, or you can even slow cook using your oven.
Read the directions all the way through and see which method will work best for your schedule.
