Day 12 Crockpot Challenge Slow Cooker Pear Butter

Now this is a recipe I won't lie I was a little afraid to try. I got this from a Cafemom group I'm a part of. When I saw that the local grocery had pears on sale I thought what perfect timing! This was really easy and surprisingly my kids are madly in love with it! They have been eating it on their peanut butter sandwiches today and loving it! Here is what you will need:

10 large, well ripened pears(4 lbs)
2 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups sugar (I only use 1 cup, 2 cups was way too sweet for me)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground allspice
Now like I said this was super easy to make. Peel and quarter pears then  place them in the slow cooker.  Cover them and cook on low 12 hours. Drain thoroughly and then discard liquid. Mash or puree pears then add remaining ingredients. Mix well and return to slow cooker. Cover cover and allow to cook on high for 1 hour. Place in hot sterile jars and seal. Process in hot water bath for 10 minutes. Allow to cool undisturbed for 24 hours. For more on canning check out My Side of Life.
