If you’re a fan of pumpkin, apple, or even fig butter, you must try this rosemary pear butter. A client of mine sent me the recipe last year and I’ve been dying to try it ever since. My house smelled amazing while it was cooking up…but I really love anything with rosemary! After tasting it, next time I would use much less honey (if any?) than the recipe calls for, and it would be just as delicious! What do you think?
A few simple ingredients

Here’s the recipe…enjoy!
Rosemary Pear Butter
- 1 jar of Trader Joe’s Pears with the juice (or 2 cups fresh chopped pears + 2 cups of pear nectar)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- 1 drop fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup wildflower honey
Cook pears for 30 minutes, then add rosemary, honey and cinnamon. Continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes. Once the mixture has cooled slightly remove the rosemary and add the lemon juice. Puree in food processor or use immersion blender. Store in individual containers and freeze or it will keep in refrigerator for several weeks.
