Recipe for Stewed Apples and Pears


Today I cooked homemade stewed apples and pears.  It’s really easy to make, and much healthier than store-bought canned fruit.  It’s delish!

You can make this recipe with just apples, just pears or a mixture of both.  I used both in my recipe.

Recipe for Homemade Stewed Apples and Pears

6 Apples or Pears (or a mix of both)
6 – 7 oz. All Natural Apple Juice (I used 1 Juicy-Juice Box)
About 1 – 2 t. Sugar to Taste (I used Turbinado Sugar)
About 1/4 – 1/2 t. Cinnamon to Taste

1.  Peel the fruit and slice it into 1 inch wide slices.
2.  Put it in a small frying pan or pot and mix it with the juice, sugar and cinnamon.
3.  Cook on low to medium heat stirring occasionally until fruit is soft to the prick of a fork.  I took the pears out earlier than the apples so they wouldn’t get mushy.
4.  Place in glass bowl and let cool.
4.  Cover and Chill (this thickens the juice and makes it like a syrup).

Feel free to change the recipe to suit your taste.

    Thanks very much for sharing this recipe. I substituted cinnamon powder and apple juice with a small stick of cinnamon and lime juice and it came out so yummy.
