Pear Compote

Pear Compote

The pears are in season and it’s time to harvest them!! My parents have this wonderful pear tree and on my visit to Oregon I felt like I needed to do something with them! I wanted to make something delicious that my baby girl and family could all enjoy. I figured I would make a pear compote, something sweet that all could enjoy!

10-12 fresh pears

¼ cup sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

½ tablespoon cinnamon, ground or pumpkin pie spice

In a large stockpot fill ½ of the pot with water. Place on stove, set temperature to high. Add pears and let them heat up as the water boils. Let the pears cook until they become soft. Drain the water and let pears cool.

Once pears are cooled, begin to peel the outer skin. Slice pears lengthwise, cut out the seeds and core. Also remove the stems and other imperfections. Chop the pears into medium size pieces.

In the same stockpot add about 2 cups of water, pears, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Bring this to a boil. Then reduce heat and mash the pears with a potato masher. The consistency should resemble applesauce.

I served this over pork and vanilla ice cream. It’s also good just by itself! Enjoy!
