Steve's Fall Pear Sauce

Steve's Fall Pear Sauce

"It's fall and there are a lot of overripe pears around, so try this recipe! You will love it! It is incredibly easy and you will wonder why you haven't made it before, once you taste it. Day-old, ugly, ripe pears that you would never eat are great for this recipe. Also, and most of all, make your food with love and encourage people as they make their own creations. It's all about the love, and when people finally sit down to partake, the experience and the way you made them feel will never be forgotten."

  1. Combine pears and water in a pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pears begin to break down, about 25 minutes. Stir lemon juice and cinnamon into pears. Blend pears with a hand blender or by transferring to a blender until smooth.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You will notice that when the pears start to boil down there will be a lot more liquid. Just pour some off as you go but don't throw it away. Put it in a tea cup and enjoy a nice hot cup of cinnamon and pear tea. Really nice!
  • Sugar can also be added if you want a sweeter sauce.

I only made one change, I omitted the cinnamon. I threw all my ingredients into my smaller crockpot and let it go all day while I was at work. Once I got home, all I had to do was mush it a bit ...
