"Pear applesauce? Papplesauce? Appearsauce? When the apple-pear sauce is served warm, you will not need any additional sugar. As it cools it loses some of the natural sweetness, and you might want to add sugar to taste."

Very nice. I wasn't sure whether the apples and pears needed peeled, but I did peel them. Maybe next time I'll try without and see. I can be an extremely lazy cook and while I wanted to make applesauce with pears to use up the pears I had, I really didn't feel like cooking it last night, so I put it in the crock pot overnight. I eyeballed ingredients, mixed it up, and left it on low all night. Woke up to a wonderful smelling house. I chose not to puree this but just mashed it with a potato masher in the crock pot so I'd get a chunky applesauce. It worked perfectly, and this is very tasty. I used rather tart apples so was worried I'd need sugar immediately, but it is definitely sweet enough warm not to worry about it. Very nice for breakfast with a side of toast! Thanks for the recipe!
The pears I used weren't quite sweet enough, so I ended up adding maybe a Tbsp of sugar, I also added about a 1/4 tsp of salt to accentuate the flavors. Loved the buttery smooth texture of this sauce!
Super easy to make, and absolutely delicious. I didn't process it though, just mashed it manually because we like a chunkier sauce.
Tasted great! I left it chunky because that's how I like it. It did look more runny than I had expected but it didn't taste runny/liquidy
Delicious!! I added a little pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg.
My house smelled absolutely amazing as this sauce simmered on the stove.So easy and economical when apples and pears are in season!
I added cinnamon to taste and a bit of lime juice for punch. Perfect for all of us.
