Homemade pear butter is a perfect solution for using up bulk dried pears. When you get this fruity spread going, the hardest part of the whole process is waiting for it to cook!
I kept the flavors bright and simple with just a touch of lemon juice, plus one whole vanilla bean. Instead of struggling to scrape out the seeds from this pod, I simply popped the whole thing into the pot, let it rehydrate, and blended it all up. This recipe would be so easy to dress up with any different spices or fruit juices. Have fun, play around with it, make it yours- I can see plenty of gifting opportunities with this sweet spread!
