Recipe by Susiecat too

Similar to applesauce, but different too! Lovely over pancakes or waffles instead of syrup.

What a fun recipe! I did peal my pears as they were from a friend's tree and had coarse skins. I also added some cinnamon. So easy and so healthy! Thanks for a great recipe I will use from now on when I get bags of fruit that I don't know what to do with :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -5 large pears, cored and coarsely chopped, with skins still on (about 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Cook pears over medium-low heat, covered, for a few minutes until they start to release all their juices. Then uncover and continue to cook until pears are soft.
  2. Mash or puree to get your desired texture - I like to leave it kind of chunky.
  3. Stir in honey and vanilla, mix well.
  4. This will be a rather thin pear sauce, if thicker is desired, then continue to cook for up to an hour or so to evaporate more of the liquid.
  5. Store refrigerated, tightly covered, for up to 2 weeks.
  6. May also be frozen.
