Apple-Pear Butter

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This fruit butter is not too sweet and is a family favorite. Store in an airtight container or can. This is a great holiday present. I cover the lid with a pretty piece of cloth and add a handmade ornament for the top. Everyone loves this and always asks for more."

I made a double recipe, which is not a great idea because it takes longer to reduce the water, but turned out wonderful! I also added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/4 cup of brown sugar
