Simple Homemade Pear Sauce Recipe

Wellness Wednesday, Recipe, FoodAnneke McConnellComment

Hi friends!  If you're loving the Burgundy trend this Fall, be sure to check out my last post with the best of burgundy style right now. I can't tell you how much I LOVE the color and it truly looks amazing on everyone.

Today's simple homemade pear sauce recipe came out of the need to process a HUGE batch of pears my husband brought home from a recent deer hunting trip to Tonasket, Eastern Washington.  It is the season of apples and pears here in Washington and we LOVE to make dehydrated apples, sauces, etc. for the upcoming months! I'll share more on Instagram. :-)

This recipe is truly foolproof!  The only part that admittedly takes awhile is peeling the pears, so do yourself a favor and have a high quality peeler and corer.  I'm thinking it's about time I invested a nominal amount into an electric vegetable and fruit peeler and get our kiddos set up at stations to speed up the process! 

 

Here's what you'll need:

  • Vegetable Peeler
  • Apple Corer
  • Small knife to dice the pears smaller if you'd like
  • Large Pot for cooking the pears
  • Large Spoon for mixing
  • Immersion Blender 
  • Water
  • Fresh Lemon
  • Cinnamon (optional: to taste)
  • And Pears of course!

 

Directions to make Pear Sauce:

 

  1. Peel your pears. (about 40-60 depending on the size)
  2. Core your pears with an apple corer.
  3. Dice into smaller pieces, about 1 inch. (optional)
  4. Place the diced pears, half of a fresh juiced lemon, and about a cup of water into a large pot. I used our 8 quart pot.
  5. Bring the pear to a boil, stir and then simmer for about 30-40 minutes with the lid on.
  6. Use an immersion blender to puree the pears. We us this one!
  7. Add the other half of fresh lemon juice.
  8. Add cinnamon to taste (1tsp.-1 tbsp. or so)
  9. Simmer with the lid off until your pear sauce is reduced to your desired thickness.
  10. Enjoy! The more ripe the pears are, the sweeter the flavor!

The Best of Burgundy Fashion for Fall and Winter

Fall Fashion, Fashion, Fashion Blog Posts, Handbags, Shoes, sale alertAnneke McConnellComment

Hi friends! I hope you've been having a great day! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that's where I share more of my fashion finds, and I have to admit, burgundy is having a moment in my opinion.

I've been a fan of the color for years and I think that it is universally flattering on EVERYONE, so it's fun to see how the color is showing up in fashion and home decor alike!

Of all the colors out there, burgundy goes by way more names than any other I've seen.  As I was finding all the burgundy fashion items right now, I found pieces under the name merlot, wine, port, oxblood, acai, dark plum, dark red, deep currant, berry, and more.

It's also a beautiful color that shows up in a variety of patterns and textures, from plaid, crushed velvet, satin, leather, faux leather, suede, and corded, knits, silks, and not to mention the gorgeous jewelry pieces! These plum tassel earrings are probably my FAVE!  I also lean toward simplicity and a good burgundy sweater like this one will always be my go-to. ;-)

If you're a fan of the color burgundy, I hope this helps you find the best for fashion all in one place!  Below is a boutique that shares Fall fashion items such as sweaters, jeans, booties, over the knee boots, strappy heels, chunky heels, workout leggings, scarves, hats, and of course plenty of gorgeous handbags, probably my favorite in the burgundy color!

Happy shopping and happy Fall!

Also! Just a friendly reminder that today is the LAST DAY of the rare Serena & Lily friends and family sale! 20% off sitewide - this chair is a MUST for coastal home decor!

Fave Things Friday and Weekend Sales

Anneke McConnellComment

Hi friends! I'm so glad you found my last post helpful on the best seasonal throw blankets across the internet.  I love a good oversized blanket to snuggle up with during the colder months. :-) 

This weekend my firefighter husband and oldest daughter are off on their father daughter deer hunting trip to Eastern Washington, so the other two kiddos and I get to have some quality time together and hold down the fort. lol

So, most days I'm inspired by so many creative individuals and usually see 100s of images as I search the latest in home decor and fashion. I can't possibly share ALL of these with you, so these are my Fave Things from this week. :-)

 

1. Most Liked Coastal Interiors instagram photo.

It's hard not to love this gorgeous kitchen reveal by Lucy of Ms Craftberry Bush. I have admired her work for so long and LOVE what she has done here. That blue kitchen island is stunning!

3. Favorite Recipe: Curried Cauliflower Soup Recipe (whole 30 and paleo compliant)

Jennifer from The Chronicles of Home is often sharing the yummiest recipes on her blog and this Curried Cauliflower Soup recipe is definitely a must try for our family. We are primarily a gluten and dairy free, whole foods kind of eating family, so I'm always looking for great new recipes!

4. Favorite Christmas Holiday Decor Items.

It's no secret that I LOVE Christmas. And I think the older I get the less I care about getter excited for the Holiday earlier. Now, I'm honestly not much of a seasonal decorator and storage space is limited at our little beach house.  

For Christmas and Thanksgiving I tend to keep the decor to fresh greens and simple, elegant, timeless decoration.  When items start to come out in stores, I get so excited! Haha! Here are a handful of items that caught my eye this week.

 

5. Fave Fall Sweater

I can't get enough of a good knit sweater and this one is a great staple item for Fall & Winter. Bonus: it's currently 40% off!
