Pear Sauce & Pear Butter – Total Elimination Diet

Pear Sauce is the apple sauce of the Total Elimination Diet.  It’s a little gritty, but when you can only eat 5 things you take what you can get.  I’ve found that I like it best as a dipping sauce, but eating it plain is good too.

I don’t often make the pear butter because it takes so much longer and I’ve got a baby to take care of. There also isn’t as much pear butter because it cooks down so much.  However the pear butter is delicious on rice cakes for breakfast or a snack.

Ingredients
•4 bartlett pears, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
•2 Tbsp pear juice
•Dash of salt

Instructions
1) Peel pears and cut into chunks
2) Place the pears and juice in a large, heavy pot. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a
simmer, cover and simmer until the pears are very soft, about 30 minutes. Puree in a
blender.  For Pear Sauce stop here and transfer sauce to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.  For Pear Butter return to the pot and continue as described below.
3) Cook at a bare simmer, stirring once in a while to make sure the apple butter isn’t
burning. Continue to cook until the mixture is thick and dark, 2 to 2 ½ hours.
4) Transfer the apple butter to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
