Here are my jars of "Pear Butter" < that's some good tasting stuff :o) I found a nice recipe on the internet and I'm glad I did.
It has orange zest , orange juice and nutmeg in it makes it a nice flavor..I can see where next years Pears will be making more of it. Cecil had a taste and liked it right away. I didn't have to peel the pears for the Pear Butter I just put them (skin and core) into the "Champion" and she masticates it (think thats the right word. :o) I've posted the Champion before, here she is again.:o) There are two bowls under her ..the one on the left holds the "mashed waste" the one on the right holds the juice/puree of whatever your using ..see the wooden thingy at the top, that's the masher to press whatever your doing. As you work, you take the "waste" and put it back into the masher part and it will continue to take all the pulp and juice from the ingredients...for my tomatoes, I put the tomato quarters (cut enough to fit the hole) and the onions, some cuban oregano,parsley and green peppers, keep putting them back until they are just about dry
I did my tomatoes so I could cook and can them in the morning.. A good nights rest is what I need now..
