This recipe takes a bit of time to make but is well worth the effort! The “butter” turned out very smooth and tastes amazing! (Because we grow our own pears, I used homemade pear nectar instead of pear juice.)
Forgot to say that I discarded the ginger at the same time I discarded the vanilla bean and the cinnamon.
This is quite yummy!!! A bit messy for the stove because I could not find pear juice and substituted pear nectar. The nectar splattered quite a bit during the boiling down process. I also used three, 2 1/2 inch sticks of cinnamon instead of the rosemary and added a one inch piece of crystilized ginger. I used apple cider vinegar instead of the white balsamic vinegar. I added the cinnamon sticks with the vanilla bean and discarded them with the bean. The butter was very yummy. I would make this again!!!
How much rosemary; 12 inches total or 4 inches total??Regards, Gloria J. Perez
I think somethings missing in this recipe...I did everything according to the recipe, but mine never congealed. It has the consistency of applesauce, am I missing something? Otherwise, the taste is delicious!*please note that you can find pear juice in any health food section of your grocer, or health food store. It is with the natural juices ....
If you have an orchard near you, they might have pear juice.
Look for Pear Nectar. I'm sure that's what they ment or...juice saved from canned pears. I am going to use the nectar.
Looks interesting but I don't know where to purchase pear juice. Will apple juice work?
This looks delicious, but I have never seen pear juice in the store. Is it readily available? I was surprised to see no added sugar, so I assume it is more savory than apple butter. (?)
