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 :)
- 4 -5 large pears, cored and coarsely chopped, with skins still on (about 4 cups)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
- Mash or puree to get your desired texture - I like to leave it kind of chunky.
- Stir in honey and vanilla, mix well.
- 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.
- Store refrigerated, tightly covered, for up to 2 weeks.
- May also be frozen.
