Pear Sauce

We use apple sauce in our granola bars and waffles. I can't wait to try them with our pear sauce. When I made ours, I added no sugar or cinnamon, but maybe next time. Also, the recipe only stated to "chop" pears. I suggest chopping them in a food processor or blending it after cooking for a smooth sauce.


* 40-50 pears (chopped)
* 1 cup water
* 2 tsp lemon juice or citric acid
* sugar to taste (optional)
* cinnamon to taste (optional)

- put pears and water in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer for about
20-30 mins with lid on...until pears are soft. 
-Add lemon juice or citric acid, sugar and cinnamon ( if using). Simmer for about another 50 minutes without the lid. 
- you can either refridgerate your pear sauce or water bath can them. 

- use pint or quart jars. sterilize your jars and prepare the lids. 
-add pear sauce to jars. wipe rims clean and screw canning lids on jars.
- put jars in boiling water bath. process 20 mins for pints and 25 mins for quarts.
