We had all these lovely pears off the tree in the backyard, but they took forever to ripen. We did eat a few here and there, and they tasted fine, but I had to find something to make with them. I didn’t want to waste them!

Matt suggested, “How about pear butter? I love apple butter. It can’t be that different.” I’d never tried making anything like that before, because I usually don’t eat it.

I looked through recipes online and Chickens in the Road‘s author Suzanne McMinn entertained with a heartwarming story about how she made pear butter in a 100-year-old farmhouse with an elderly woman named Georgia.
