Fill large, family sized crock pot with pears, peeled and sliced
4 cups filtered water
3 cups of white grape juice
4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. ground allspice
1 heaping tsp. of stevia powder (Nu Stevia brand is what I recommend can purchase online or at healthfood store.)
1. Peel and slice pears.
2. Fill crockpot and cook until tender with water and white grape juice.’
3. Transfer cooked pears to blender. Add spices at this time. (Liquid from pears may be reserved, seasoned and canned to drink hot as mulled cider.)
4. Return pear puree to crockpot to “cook down” . This crockpot method works for me, because it cooks while unattended without risk of scalding. The secret to make this work is using a splatter guard like you can get at a dollar store to cover your skillet when cooking bacon. This allows the necessary evaporation to take place.
5. As the pear butter cooks, occasionally stir it, pulling the thickened sauce away from the edges.
