Last week my friend Tiffany gave me this enormous box of pears.  And now I’m trying to come up with ways to use them all up, as I don’t want them to go to waste…I have a really hard time throwing food out…it feels like bad karma to me!

And since many of the pears are very ripe, bordering on overripe, I thought one of the best ways to deal with them was to turn them into a sauce like apple sauce.  And what better way to do that than with a slow cooker.

So on a busy morning before we rushed out to school, work and errands I loaded up my slow cooker with fresh pears and waited for the magic to happen.  After a few hours on low, the house smelled like cinnamon, and I had a delicious batch of pear sauce to use.

The thing about pear sauce, is that it’s not apple sauce.  It’s much different…the texture is a little more gritty, and the flavour is different, but it’s delicious.  It’s very good over vanilla ice cream, but I plan on mostly baking with the sauce.  I’m going to make muffins, a breakfast oatmeal and a few other things which I hope to share with you soon!
