Spiced Pear Sauce

Spiced Pear SauceThe pears are on!  This year I decided to try making pear sauce as suggested by a friend and it worked out beautifully!  Just wish I had more pears!  This recipe is simple and taste wonderful!  We like to eat it with our pancakes instead of syrup or with plain yogurt.  Makes 6 quarts.


16 cups pear puree

4 lemons juiced

4 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons ginger

2 teaspoons vanilla

Process the pears through a Victoria Strainer and add the puree to a large pot.  Add the lemon juice, cinnamon and ginger.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 10minutes.  Add the vanilla and pour into quart bottles.  Process for 20 minutes.

    Hello, Emily! This recipe looks great. Do you think it would translate well to applesauce, or would you suggest a different recipe?
