Pear Apple Butter | Celebrate Fall right, with his incredible butter! Full of juicy fruit and warm spices that will last up to a month in the refrigerator. The perfect addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas breakfast buffet. Add a basket of homemade BUTTERMILK BISCUITS and you know the buffet will be a hit.
With a few ingredients and taking under 40 minutes to cook, this jar of happiness can be waiting for you in no time. The texture is up to you! Process the fruit a little to get more of an apple sauce texture, process it more to get a creamier texture.
OVERNIGHT GUESTS ARE HARD: Another great thing about this butter is you can make it ahead of time. The holiday season is busy with all the preparations and shopping you need something nice to be able to feed your guests for breakfast. Remember it doesn’t ALL have to be homemade! When I don’t have time to make biscuits from scratch I like to use Pillsbury frozen biscuits. They’re as close as you can get to homemade. Don’t get me wrong they’re not as good but close.
