    KittyKitty's Note:

    Apple butter is more popular, but I like the pear butter better, you could use apples in this recipe instead of pears if you like.

      Delicious Pear Butter! I made this last night, but it was too sweet so I had to add extra pears & more orange and nutmeg. By the time I had finished, this tasted like Orange Marmalade! It was wonderful!
