Apple Pear Sauce

Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"Pear applesauce? Papplesauce? Appearsauce? When the apple-pear sauce is served warm, you will not need any additional sugar. As it cools it loses some of the natural sweetness, and you might want to add sugar to taste."

Very nice. I wasn't sure whether the apples and pears needed peeled, but I did peel them. Maybe next time I'll try without and see. I can be an extremely lazy cook and while I wanted to make ...

I tried this recipe but instead of water I used pineapple juice. It turned out fantastic. If you like it a little on the sweeter side this is the way to go. Oh, by the way, the pineapple juice...

The pears I used weren't quite sweet enough, so I ended up adding maybe a Tbsp of sugar, I also added about a 1/4 tsp of salt to accentuate the flavors. Loved the buttery smooth texture of this...

I added cinnamon to taste and a bit of lime juice for punch. Perfect for all of us.

I peeled them and did the overnight crockpot idea! My children loved it!!

yummy I love bananas, so I added one banana and the flavor really came through. Homemade applesauce is much, much better than store purchased.

My house smelled absolutely amazing as this sauce simmered on the stove.So easy and economical when apples and pears are in season!

Super easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I didn't process it though, just mashed it manually because we like a chunkier sauce.

Delicious and not too sugary. I ended up just mashing up the apples and pears instead of running through a processor and it worked out great.
