Last fall, I made several half-pints of Pear Butter. It's similar to apple butter, but with the emphasis on nutmeg instead of cinnamon in the spices.
I came up with this recipe, based on a pumpkin bread recipe, to use my pear butter. I've made a test batch, and it is delicious! I'll be serving it at a baby shower tomorrow, so I'll get some nice pictures posted soon.
