Slow Cooker Pear Sauce Recipe

How many of you love apple sauce? How many of you have tried pear sauce? Well, if you have never tried pear sauce but love applesauce, I think you will love it and it is very easy to make! Now, I don't list out the amount of ingredients because we just taste test it and make it according to our own taste buds.

Slow Cooker Pear Sauce Recipe

20 to 30 fresh ripe pears
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice
ground cinnamon
granulated sugar

Remove skin, seeds and core from pears. Chop them up into pieces and place into your slow cooker. Add just enough water to cover the pears. Stir in the lemon juice. Cover and cook on high for one hour, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 additional hours.

Use a ladle and spoon out all of the water. Spoon pears into a blender or food processor. I use a NINJA. Cover and blend for about 10 to 15 seconds. Remove lid and stir in ground cinnamon and granulated sugar according to your own taste buds. Cover and blend for an additional 10-15 seconds. We like ours very creamy. If you like it chunky, blend less.

Let it cool in the blender container to room temperature. You can then spoon it into freezer containers and freeze or you can home can it into mason jars. You will want to follow your canner's processing instructions for applesauce and make it the same way.

Sometimes I can mine (good for up to 1 year) and sometimes I freeze it like I did last week. I find it will last nicely in my freezer for up to 6 months. I like to freeze in 1/2 cup and 1 cup portions since there are no preservatives in it...I don't like to thaw out big batches and waste any.

To Thaw: Remove from freezer and place in the refrigerator overnight. Once thawed, it will keep for about 3 days.
