Slow Cooker Pear or Apple Butter – Canning What You Grow

Posted on Updated on

Holly shows how to make and can pear butter in the slow cooker. Same method can be used for making apple butter.

Recipe:
8 pounds whole apples or pears
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cinnamon sticks

Method:
Clean, peel, and roughly chop pears.
In batches, puree pears in a food processor or blender, transfer to slow cooker.
Mix in sugar with pear puree.
Add cinnamon sticks.
Turn slow cooker on low and let it sit for 6-24 hours, until desired consistency is reached. You can remove the lid for faster cooking.
Once pear butter is ready prepare jars, rings, lids and a hot water bath canner. Be sure to remove cinnamon sticks.
Once pear butter is almost to a boil fill pint jars leaving ¼ inch headspace. Process in half pints or pints for 10 minutes.
Recipe will yield approximately 4 half-pints but can be doubled.
