Cook the apples and pears with their peels, cores, and seeds to get every ounce of flavor from the fruit. Regardless of what pear variety you use, they must be ripe, or your butter may be unpleasantly grainy.

Excellent recipe!! Our family has made maple syrup for generations and when I saw this recipe it was an automatic to try. I usually only use white or clover honey when I make apple butter but this flavor is really excellent!! When fruit is in season I can or freeze it and later pull it out and find recipes to convert it to. This was my apple and pear sauce winner. Thank you!! Plus it makes my house smell so good at this time of year!
This was very good and easy to make. I still like my apple butter recipe which calls for just sugar, spices and apple cider best.
