Sweet ripe pears, seasoned with ground clove and cinnamon. Stewed in its own juices and a little brown and white sugar for added sweetness. Pear Butter gets its name because it’s creamy, whipped texture resembles that of butter. Pear butter, is much like jams and jellies, but with less sugar and the absence of pectin. It’s naturally thickened by the pear’s fiber. The sweetness of the pears reduces the need for too much additional sugar.
Peel, core and cube pears. Place the prepared pears into a medium sized saucepan.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pan with the pears, and stir to combine. Cover with a lid and cook on low, stirring occasionally, until the pears are soft. You should be able to mash them with a fork.
Remove the lid and simmer on low until the liquid thickens and begins to caramelize.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Use a blender to puree the cooked pears into a creamy butter.
Store in the refrigerator and serve chilled.
