Apple Pear Butter

November 15 , 2012 by: Hong Food

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Wow. I can’t believe a full year has already gone by. I’m excited to be hosting our family Thanksgiving meal again. I’ve been researching recipes for the past few weeks and came across this recipe for Plum Apple Butter. Since we are no longer in plum season I substituted pears instead.

The boys loved it and I’ll be serving it with a baguette and goat cheese as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. It’s so quick and easy and stores well for a couple weeks. Doesn’t this just scream Fall?


3 medium sized plums (or 4 small), pitted and quartered

I used one bosc pear

2 medium sized tart apples, peeled, cored and quartered

1/4 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

dash cloves

Place plums, apples and water in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until fruit is tender. Remove from heat and pour into blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour back into saucepan. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for 40 minutes or until thick enough that it mounds on a plate without spreading. Cool completely before covering. Store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Happy Friday!

  • Spent the weekend at anchor in Liberty Bay. These types of weekends alway remind me of how little we really need in life; nourishment, warmth, love, and a little attention. Happy Earth Day.
  • One of the things I love most about travel is the the discovery of universal languages such as food and an appreciation for culture. Some cities of course are better hosts than others at this but the discovery is part of the magic. This concludes my travel posts but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog to post more photos and tips specifically about Lisbon since some of you have inquired. More to come! ❤️
  • Lisbon; lively and busy but time stand stills. Modern with lots of character and respectful of traditions. Do yourself a favor and book your next trip to Lisbon. .
