This 4-ingredient pear spread is like magic. Spread it on just about anything

Print this recipe
Like a super concentrated pear sauce, pear butter is packed with flavor but takes only a few ingredients to make. Making pear butter in the slow cooker is especially easy — it’s a true dump-and-go recipe. And the next thing you know, your house will smell amazing.
The best thing about this sweet-tart spread is that, just like apple butter, it's delicious on all sorts of things. You can spread it on toast or muffins, slather it on pancakes or even add it to a cheese sandwich or cheese plate. It also makes an ideal hostess or holiday gift — put it in a canning jar and tie a pretty ribbon around it, and you’re good to go.
