Spiced Pear sauce...and fruit leather!

Submitted by: BANANAFISH711

Introduction

I first made this after receiving a beautiful box of Harry and David pears as a gift. The pear sauce is fantastic right out of the jar, but this takes it one step further.

Ingredients

    1 lb. fresh pears
    cinnamon
    allspice
    cloves
    nutmeg
    1 tbsp. natural honey (opt.--for fruit leather)

Directions

*Dice pears and place in a dutch oven with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice.
*When the fruit is relatively soft, run the whole mixture through a food mill to puree. Reduce this mixture over low heat until it reaches your preferred consistency.
*I like my fruit sauces a bit on the thick side, and if you plan to use it for fruit leather, this is a good extra step to take.
*For fruit leather, mix in 1 tbsp. of raw honey (to prevent brittle leather), and pour the sauce out onto a lipped tray that has been lightly greased.
*Place in a food dehydrator or oven at 135 degrees F for 4-8 hours or until it is pliable.
