I made plum sauce (like apple sauce but with my prune plums) last year because I had sooo many. It came out really good. I have never had pear sauce. I planted a pear tree last year, a keifer. I was going to get another pear this year, but they were all out by the time I went looking. When I get a big enough harves (eventually) I will have to try pear sauce.Our plans accelerated. We made pear sauce from 1 and 1/2 5-gallon buckets of pears. 1 18 qt roaster full, 11 qts. We'll probably have enough pears for another 3-5 batches. It takes the two of us about 2 hours to use the corer/peeler/slicer to get through that many pears.
