This month I was assigned Theresa from Island Vittles. I had such a hard time picking one recipe to make this month. I ended up bookmarking 4 or 5 different things to go back and try, especially the rosemary and parmesan popovers…yum!
I finally settled on a recipe, pear butter. It sounded delicious and very seasonal.
Ironically enough, I am posting this exactly 1 year after Theresa originally posted the recipe!
Pear butter is very similar to other fruit butters I have made. It’s smooth and sweet characteristics make it ideal for spreading on toast, spooning over ice cream, or stirring into yogurt.
While I was making the delicious vat of fruit butter I started to think of possible uses…
My first thought was a turkey panini with granny smith apple slices, crispy bacon and smoked gouda. Then I thought how I could share this with a lot of people. An hor d’oeuvres tray with the fruit butter as a center piece, bread, fruit, cheese, a few salty meats and a bottle of wine would be tasty too.
