Easy crock pot pear butter

Recently my husband was gifted a beautiful basket of pears which we thoroughly enjoyed. I decided to use some of the pears to make pear butter that we could enjoy for breakfast with toast or swirled into oatmeal. This is my recipe for pear butter prepared in a crockpot, it was very easy and made the house smell great!! I froze the leftovers in a muffin tin to provide just enough pear butter for breakfast each. It has turned into the gift that keeps on giving!

  5. The actual time will depend on the size and power of your crock pot as well as the final thickness you want. It will reduce in volume and thicken as it cooks.
  6. Enjoy! It will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks. You could also can it. As I am not (yet!) a canner I froze some of Pear Butter by spooning it into a greased muffin tin, covering with plastic wrap and freezing overnight. In the morning I had 8 3oz servings that I placed into a Ziploc to store in the freezer. So whenever I want homemade pear butter I just reach into the freezer! The pear butter servings thaw quickly in the microwave to provide a warm pear butter for your enjoyment.
