Directions

  1. Place the pears into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until fruit is soft, about 30 minutes. Drain and transfer the pears to a blender. Puree the pears and return them to the pot.
  2. Stir the sugar, sweetener, orange zest, nutmeg and orange juice into the pot and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring frequently until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the gelatin until completely dissolved. Ladle into hot sterile jars and seal with lids and rings, or fill freezer containers and freeze if you prefer.

This is really good! I used Bosc Pears and left the skins on and it looked so pretty pureed with little flecks of warm earthy brown pieces in the butter. I found that the citrus was a little too intense , so I will leave out at least 1/2 the amount of the zest next time. I have never made this before, so I am not sure how thick this should be. Is it supposed to be spreadable? Mine came out a little like pudding in consistency. Im very happy with it and I recommend this recipe and will make it again. THX.
