|1. Pull stem from whole pear.|
|2. Cut pear in half.|
|3. Use a melon baller or metal spoon to remove seeds.|
|4. Cut pears in half one more time so they are now in quarters.|
|5. Place pears in a pot and fill with about 1″ water and heat over medium heat until pears become very soft.|
|6. Remove pears from heat and drain water.|
|7. Place pears in your Kitchen Aid Strainer and follow Kitchen Aid instructions for proper strainer use.|
|8. Place strained pears in stock pot and if you would like a thicker sauce, cook down pearsauce uncovered over medium heat until you reach your desired consistency.|
|9. Process jars using boiling water bath method.|
TIP: I had some nice ripe sweet pears and therefore did not need any additional sweetener. You can add sugar or honey to your pearsauce if you desire some added sweetness.
Next time I make this I think I will just peal the pears and cook them down in a crock pot. It seemed like the strainer disposed of a lot of good fruit and I just don’t like to waste anything!
This has been such a hit that I am going to make double or triple the amount next year! My family now prefers pearsauce over applesauce!
