Pearsauce!  I have made applesauce for years for my family.  I was looking at the bowl of pears that sat on my counter and thought, hmmm, pearsauce!  This was my first attempt at making it and my family loves it!  I peeled and diced the pears and slowly simmered it on the stove.  When I added the spices to it, the whole house smelled yummy!  Pearsauce is great on toast or just in a bowl for breakfast. I hope you will try this recipe and enjoy it, too!
