Tennessee Fire Vanilla Pear Butter Recipe

Tennessee Fire Vanilla Pear Butter will be one of your favorite spreads for fresh biscuits and toast!

Tennessee Fire Vanilla Pear Butter

Recently, I had someone give me a bag of pears that they weren’t going to eat. I have two teenage boys in the house so it’s not often that we turn away food. After sitting on my counter for one night, I noticed the bag was leaking the next morning. One of the pears in the center of the bag had busted. I didn’t want it to ruin the rest of the fruit so the obvious thing was to use them up — and quickly.

Apple butter has always been one of my favorite spreads; but I had pears, not apples. What’s a frugal mama to do? Make pear butter, of course! Cinnamon and pears are a given combination; but I decided to add a twist and use Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire.

I also had a vanilla pod that needed to be used — why not throw that in too? Turns out, it was the perfect final touch for the pear butter! Try this tasty Tennessee Fire Vanilla Pear Butter on toast or fresh biscuits and let me know what you think!

Pear Butter Ingredients You’ll Need:

How to Make Pear Butter:

Wash, peel, and core your pears. Dice and thoroughly rinse.

Place diced pears into your Dutch oven or large heavy-bottom pot over high heat. Add ¼ cup of water to start. Heat until boiling.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for approximately 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding ¼ cup of water at a time, as needed.

Remove pears from pot and allow to slightly cool.

Place pears in your food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. The texture will look like applesauce.

Return the pears to the pot over low-medium heat. Add ¼ cup of maple syrup and whisk well.

Add ¼ cup of Tennessee Fire and continue to whisk for a few minutes.

Cut open a vanilla bean pod and scrape all of the vanilla out.

Remove the pot from heat and whisk in the vanilla.

Allow to cool. Transfer to your jar. This recipe will fill your jar and leave approximately ¼ cup remaining.

If your mixture is too thin, allow it to continue cooking for a few more minutes to further reduce or run through a strainer.

Keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
