An Abundance of Pears

August 28, 2015

My husband and I recently bought a house in Greensboro, North Carolina.  It is a bit of a fixer upper, but we love it.  One unexpected joy in moving into our new home was discovering that we have a pear tree.  Growing up, my grandmother had apple trees in her yard and I remember getting so excited when they were ripe and ready for the taking.  We have already given away and/or eaten 50+ pears and there are still tons on the tree.

In efforts to use some of them up, I decided to make pear sauce (think apple sauce but with pears).  It turned out great.  My 10 month old especially loves it.

Slow Cooker Pear Sauce

Ingredients

  • 12+ pears (3-3.5 lbs)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8-1/4 cup (depending on how sweet you like it) honey or maple syrup

Directions

  1. Peel, core, and chop pears
  2. Add remaining ingredients (water, lemon juice, spices, sweetener)  and stir to cover pears.
  3. Cook in your slow cooker on high for 2-4 hours or until pears are soft.
  4. Use an immersion or regular blender to blend to your preferred consistency.

Transitioning Your Skincare for Winter

October 20, 2020

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
