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.

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

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.
