Serves 8 servings

1 pound pears (any type), washed, stemmed and cored
1/4 cup water
1/4 apple cider
A dash of nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar


Roughly chop pears and place in a saucepan with water and apple cider. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until pears have broken down, about 5 -7 minutes.

Place in blender (or use a stick blender) and process to smooth.

Combine pear purée and sugar (add more sugar if desired) and place sweetened pulp in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, for 1-2 hours or until thick enough so the butter doesn't run off a spoon when turned upside down.
