We've been gifted by some friends sharing a
bumper crop of pears with us this season.

We love pears.
Plain
and 
cooked up fancy.

So I whipped up some Pear Butter
to slather on our
toast, waffles, ice cream…

Most recipes out there call for 
something like 7 pounds of pears!

Here's a simple, small-batch recipe
you can leave in your mini crockpot all day
and enjoy for the next few weeks.

Here is how to make

Crockpot Pear Butter for Two:

Peel, core and chop 8 pears
and place in a sauce pan.
Add 2 Tablespoons of water. 
Bring to a boil for 15 minutes until
pears are tender.

 While pears are boiling,
Place the following ingredients in
a mini crockpot:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

Remove pears from stove top.
Use blender or mixer and mix until semi-smooth - 
not puree but not too lumpy.

Transfer to crockpot and stir
until all ingredients are mixed well.
Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
Leave on low for 8 hours until 
reduced down to a "butter" that can hold it's shape.

I left the crockpot lid slightly askew
to allow steam to escape.

Cool and place in a recycled jar
or a mason jar.
Refrigerate. 

Spread and enjoy!
