Think apple sauce, but made with pears instead. You actually don’t need anything but pears for this recipe! If the pears are ripe, the slow cooking will bring all the sugars out and it will be lovely and sweet. To speed up the process you can add a splash of water if you like, and cinnamon can be added as well for an extra kick- but I encourage you to try the simple version! (You might be surprised!) I just mashed mine with a fork, but if you like it super smooth, just pop it in the food processor for a minute.

There’s been a lot of rain here lately which makes for brilliantly green moss everywhere! It’s so cozy to be inside by the fire with a bowl of warm pear sauce.
