A nutty, spicy pear butter.
Servings: variesPrep Time: several hours Cook Time: varies
PER QUART PEAR SAUCE:
1 1/2 to 2 cups sugar*
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
*Adjust amount of sugar to suit your tastes. Start with the lower amount and see how you like it. I use 1 3/4 cups.
I simmer my butters in crock pots. Whatever you’re using, combine the pear sauce, sugar, pecans, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice in the pot and mix well. Simmer for several hours, stirring occasionally. When the butter is thick–rounds up on a spoon–it’s ready.
Process in a boiling water bath 10 minutes.
Can also be canned as pecan pear sauce, without cooking down the sauce.
