Homemade Pearsauce

Pearsauce is great on it’s own or can be used as a replacement for oil and/or eggs in baked goods just like applesauce

Pre-FAILSAFE diet, homemade applesauce was one of my favorite treats. I have so many wonderful memories of sitting at the kitchen table enjoying a warm bowl of applesauce that my mom made. When I was living on my own for the first time and responsible for cooking for myself, homemade applesauce felt like such a deceivingly fancy treat.

Sadly, apples (even the supposedly moderate red delicious) were giving me hives and stomach trouble, so applesauce was officially off the menu for a while. I had to rely on pears — the only fruit that’s considered to be FAILSAFE — for just about everything. On a day when I found myself with an abundance of ripe pears and nothing to make with them, I decided to give pearsauce a try.


Pearsauce is delicious!! It’s got such a lovely natural sweetness and the texture is absolutely delightful. It works well on it’s own as a snack and even works a treat in baked goods, just like applesauce (like in this recipe for pear sweat bread) The serving size is the same as if you were eating a raw pear, so make sure to stick to no more than two pears-worth.

Do yourself a favor and grab a bunch of pears at your next shopping trip. Set aside a few to make a pear crumble and then use the rest to make a batch of homemade pearsauce.

You can thank me later.
