When our neighbors offered us as many pears as we could pick from their tree - we could not pass it up! We ended up with nearly 20 pounds of pears after our pick and wanted to make a healthy and sweet snack with them. Pears are high in vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and iron, making them a very nutritious food great for eating as they are, dehydrating, or incorporating into various recipes. In our recipe, we used a crockpot for cooking this flavorful pearsauce perfect for the fall season.
1/2 cup honey
1 cinnamon stick
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
Cut pears into ~ 1-inch cubes, leaving the skin on. Place chunks into crockpot.
Add honey, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar - stir until well mixed
Add cinnamon stick to top of mixture
Cover with lid and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low
Let cool and enjoy!
