How to Make Delicious Homemade Pear Sauce from Scratch

pear sauce

It was not until I was given two bushels of home-grown pears from my awesome neighbors this year that I realized I needed to learn how to make delicious homemade Pear Sauce from scratch. And if you know me well, you know that is NOT something I would typically do. One of my weaker points as a wife/momma is in the kitchen. Thankfully for the last few years I have been asking and allowing God to stretch me and grow my cooking abilities.

Since I love saving money and being wise stewards with the gifts God has given us I took the challenge making homemade Pear Sauce from scratch 🙂 I wanted to use my crockpot since I love making my life just a little easier cooking.

Here is how I make my homemade Pear Sauce

Ingredients Needed:

  • 30 pears of all sizes with skin peeled off (you can use any amount)
  • 10 packets of Stevia (from Aldi) You can use sugar 1/2 if desired instead of Stevia
  • 1 Tsp of Ginger
  • 1 Tbsp of Lite Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup of Water
  • 1 small dash of Sea Salt

Pear Sauce

Steps to Make Delicious Pear Sauce:

  1. Rinse and peel Pears (I used my potato peeler) 
  2. Cut pears into smaller pieces (see below)
  3. Put Crockpot on High and put in cut pears
  4. Put all the ingredients in and stir
  5. Let it cook for 4 hours on high til super mushy
  6. Put in blender or since I don’t have a blender, I simply mashed it with up the pears with a large spoon
  7. Let it cool and place in refrigerator (unless you like it warm)

It did not yield as much as I thought, but it was well worth the work to use these beautiful home-grown pears.

Oh my goodness, it was better than I thought it would be! It was delicious and so good that each one of my boys love it! YEAH! Now that is a major win!

For a fun bonus, use your old applesauce cups and re-fill them with your Pear Sauce. Then put foil on top for the weeks lunches. As a thank you gift for my awesome neighbors, I wanted to give them some of my Pear Sauce.
