I thought it was high time that I posted about the pear butter. This, and the apple butter is from this site (can you tell I like that blog??) Multiple batches of these became the majority of my Christmas gifts this year!~
For this pear butter, let me introduce you to the Asian Pear...It is bigger and rounder than the average pear, and tastes like a cross between a pear and an apple. A friend introduced me to them this year, and they're definitely a new favorite!
5 lbs. pears, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 c. to 3/4c. unsweetened frozen white grape juice concentrate
3 T. lemon juice
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
4 orange slices
1 T. vanilla
Put pears in a large slow cooker.
