Warning...to make pear sauce you need a LOT of pears to start with. I had about 10 quarts of sliced pears to start (I prefer to have reveal gallons at a time when I do sauce but I will take anything I can get for FREE) with and made about 7 pints of sauce. I also used my leftover scraps to make pear juice and canned it, mainly to have for our morning smoothies.
YOU WILL NEED
sugar if desire but not needed
Along with a way to process in a water bath, jars, and a food mill.
while I am coring and slicing.
Then throw all your pear pieces in a large stock pot, also add about about 2 inches of water. I ended up with about 10 quarts in my pan so I added about 1/2 cup of lemon juice and these were not the sweetest so I added about 3/4 cups of sugar which I don't normally do you could also use honey but I was out of honey.
Then cover the pot and let simmer on high for about 20 mins.
If you don't can you can also freeze this once you run it through the food mill.
