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.
I looked up brats with apples and got this amazing slow cooker brat recipe. We just had it for dinner, it was amazing!!! I made authentic German potato salad and an apple tart for dessert. Thank you for the suggestion.Apples are really good with bratwurst and sauerkraut. They're also good alongside pork chops or pork roast. And you can serve them on top of a German pancake, aka Dutch baby.
