Slow Cooker Pear Sauce Recipe
20 to 30 fresh ripe pears
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice
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.
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.
