Pear Butter Pork Roast
Make pear butter ahead of time:
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1/8 tsp salt
Place all ingredients in a crockpot and stir so sugar is mixed with pears. Cook on low for 6 hours. Let cool for 1-2 hours, then blend until it’s to your desired consistency. Once this is done, you can store the pear butter in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. This is also really good on toasted wheat bread.
Preheat oven to 375. Take 1 cup of pear butter and rub on the outside of pork roast. Either smoke the roast or bake until internal temperature is 145. Let rest for 5-10 minutes, then serve! I baked this in the oven for about an hour and in a separate pan roasted carrots, potatoes, onions, and lemons tossed in olive oil, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper for the same amount of time.
