    ~18 medium pears
    3/4 cup sugar (or Splenda, nutrition is with granulated sugar)
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1 Tbs. lemon juice


Peel, core, and quarter pears. Put through food processor until it has the consistency of applesauce. Cook all ingredients in crockpot for about 8 hours. Set the crockpot on low heat. Cook time depends on the size and power of your crockpot, and how thick you like it. Not that it will reduce in volume considerably. About the last half hour, remove the lid so it can thicken. Wash the jars in hot, soapy water and rinse, then sterilize the jars by boiling them 10 minutes, and keep the jars in hot water until they are used. Keeping them hot will prevent the jars from breaking when you fill them with the hot pear butter. Put the lids into a pan of hot, but not quite boiling water for 5 minutes. Fill jars to within 1/4 inch of the top, wipe any spilled pear butter off the top, seal the lid and tighten the ring around them. Put them in the canner (or a normal pot with dish towel on the bottom) and keep them covered with at least 1 inch of water and boiling. Boil pint jars for 15 minutes, quarts for 20 minutes. If you use a pressure cooker, process for 15 minutes at 15 pounds.

Fills 3 pints jars (+ ~`cup extra).

Serving size is 1 Tbsp.
