3 pounds of pears from the tree in the backgarden
add quite alot of muscle and time cutting up and grinding pear chunks because you don't actually want to peel the pears
and 1.5 hours oven time (150 degrees C or 300 degrees F)

yield - 2 and a bit jars of pear butter.

Do I feel virtuous? yes.
Will I do this again.

...not sure. The house smells good.

I think next time I will partially grind in the food processor, and then just use the little grinder for getting the peel out.

It might help to have an adult size food mill rather than a baby one.

PS I did this on Friday night when my husband was up in York visiting his mum.
