Apple-Pear Sauce

Homemade apple-pear sauce is easy to make in a pot on your stove top. It makes a good snack, and can even be divided into individual servings and brought to work or school to go with a lunch. This combination of fruits smells amazing while cooking.





  1. Wash, peel, and core the apple(s) and pear(s).

  2. Chop the apple(s) and Pear(s). The smaller the pieces, the less cook time needed.

  3. Place the apple and pear pieces into a saucepan and cover with water. Only use enough water to barely cover the fruit, adding more if needed before the fruit is cooked down.

  4. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until there are small pieces of apple and pear left but there is also plenty of sauce.

  5. Allow to cool or eat warm.


  • Use cinnamon to add additional flavor to the sauce.

  • This can be cooked down so there are no chunks.

  • Save money by using fruit that is almost gone by and sold for less at the store. Cut out any bruised parts.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve hot over Paleo banana ice cream.

  • Make a syrup for pancakes or waffles by adding 2 or 3 tablespoons of maple syrup to the sauce.
