Ingredients

  • 12 Bosc pears, very ripe, cored, peeled, and cut into large chunks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 3 strips lemon rind, about 2 inches in length

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place all ingredients and 1/4 cup water in a heavy-bottomed pan. Cook over a low flame 2 to 3 hours, until the fruit is soft.

  2. Step 2

    Remove the vanilla bean, and put the fruit through a food mill on the smallest setting. Pour into canning jars, filling them within a half inch of top. Tap filled jars on table, and run a knife around sides to remove air bubbles. Make sure the top of the jar is clean; seal.

  3. Step 3

    Refrigerate immediately. The butter will keep for two to four weeks.
