Applesauce, but made with pears?

I ordered 40 lbs of pears from my sons FFA fundraiser. 40 lbs of pears is alot more than I thought. I had planned on canning most of them but I was wondering if anyone made pear sause? Like apple sause but with pears. It seems to me that I seen a recipe for that one time but I don't remember where.

Sounds good to me!

I would also try making a pear crisp.

I don't like raw pears (a texture thing--but we have pear trees), but I have made pear crisp a number of times and it is very good. I would think you could do that with the pearsauce you made.

I have pear trees, and make pear sauce every year. I do it just like apple sauce. Pear preserves are also nice. Just a touch of nutmeg really is nice in either.

I have used the recipe in the Ball canning book for pear butter and it is wonderful. It calls for nutmeg as well as an orange product. I believe the recipe calls for orange juice and orange peel, but I used orange oil to great success. It is divine on toast or biscuits.

Oh boy, that sounds better than apple butter. I'm not big on apples.

Wife just wants me to can pears and not be messing around with that other stuff. I cant help it. Im going to try a small batch of pearsause. She likes them raw the best but can tolerate canned. She will not eat cooked pears in anything else.

Thanks everyone! the pear butter sounds really good also.
