Makes: 1 cup
4 ripe and firm Bartlett Pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch sections.
¾ cup of pear nectar
1. Place pears and the pear nectar into a heavy medium saucepan, and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over medium to low heat. Stir occasionally until the pears are tender (30 to 35 minutes).
2. Mash the pears thoroughly. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the puree has cooked down to a thick mass (20 to 30 minutes). Stir constantly toward the end of cooking. Scrape the pear butter into a bowl or storage container and let cool.
