> 3 lbs Bartlett or Bosc pears
> 1 lemon
> 1/2 cup granulated sugar
> 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
> 1 (1 - inch) piece ginger, peeled and minced
> 1 tsp vanilla extract
> 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
> 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
> 1/4 tsp salt
> 2 tsp cornstarch


Peel, core, and roughly chop the pears. Add pears to an Instant Pot® along with ¼ cup water, juice of the lemon, granulated sugar, brown sugar, ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Seal and set Instant Pot® to high pressure. Cook 50 min. Let naturally release for 10 min.
Let pear butter cool slightly. With an immersion blender, carefully purée pear mixture until smooth. Change Instant Pot® setting to sauté, add the cornstarch, and simmer 4–6 min., until thickened. Let cool completely. Allow to set for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. Keep refrigerated and enjoy up to 7 days.
