The aroma of pears and cinnamon will spread throughout your home chasing away the winter blues with this pear butter. I chose to use the crock pot but you can make it on the stove top.
8 Bosc or Bartlett pears, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
Place the pear chunks and lemon juice in your crock pot or large saucepan. The pears will release juice as you cook so there is no need to add in additional liquid. Turn the heat to medium and cook the pears until they are soft. Use an immersion blender or run the pears through a food mill and return to the crock pot/saucepan. Add in the brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cook until it thickens.
