  • Although pears and apples hold their own as autumn gems, combining the two imparts a lovely, delicate flavor which provides even more options for taking advantage of seasonal fall fruit. Apple-pear pie comes to mind, but also apple-pear juice! Although it may be available at your local market, did you know that you can make your own fresh, raw sparkling apple-pear juice? No heating required (and no juicer!), retaining all the nutritious vitamins and enzymes.

Apple fruit nutrition facts and health benefits

I tend to make fruit butters in a two (or more) day process. Starting with the whole peaches, pears or apples, I simply cut them into chunks (the apples get peeled, but I leave the skins on the peaches and pears) and cook them down into sauce with a little bit of water. When they can be squished with the flat side of a wooden spoon, I puree them with an immersion blender. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender (working carefully in batches) or a food mill to create a smooth sauce from the cooked fruit.
