This smooth, spiced Pear Butter is the perfect way to welcome Autumn. Hello, Fall!
Autumn is my favorite time of the year for making fruit butters. Although you can make them any time during the summer with your favorite fruit, to me there's just something about apples and pears and the traditional fall spices that go along with them that make me feel ready for cozy fires, crunchy leaves, and hot cups of tea and apple cider.
My favorite way to enjoy this Pear Butter is simply spread on a sliced muffin or a scone - but I also frequently use it in quick breads in place of applesauce. Feel free to play with the spices and tailor them to your tastes.
Cardamom adds a smoky sweet flavor to just about any recipe. Don't skip it here.
