Turkey Hill Pear Butter Recipe


  • 24 pears
  • 1 qt. apple cider
  • 3 lb. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon


Wash, core, and peel pears. Cut into quarters. Place in a large pot with a little water (enough to cover pear quarters) and cook until soft. In a large roaster pan, combine the 6 quarts of pear sauce with cider, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Bake in a 400° oven for 3 to 4 hours. Stir occasionally during baking time. Allow oven door to stand a bit ajar so moisture can escape. This will boil down to about half the volume. Pack in jars and seal.

Yield: 3 to 4 quarts
