I just love a cookbook where every recipe I try turns out magically fabulous. I have been looking for ways to take advantage of jillions of free pears from my parents’ house, and came across the recipe for apple butter in the Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It book. I’ve been making some of the refrigerator pickles in this book, with delicious results, so I decided to try it.
What I have made, friends, should be illegal. The recipe only calls for 1/3 cup brown sugar for the entire batch, but what you get isn’t pear butter, it’s pear crack. One little taste and you will be HOOKED.
Don’t worry, the first one’s free. 🙂
