Korean Pear-Applesauce

Occasionally Amul and I end up with a surplus of fruit. Okay, maybe a little more often than occasionally. Fruit that's a little too ripe to eat, but nowhere near bad. Two or three soft aples, and I usually make a batch of my apple streusel bread. This time around, with guests coming and going, and us in and out of town this fall as well, I found out fruit drawer contained a few more than one or two neglected apples. More like four or five. And about six Korean pears, too. As much as I enjoy baking, I wasn't in the mood to make ten loaves of bread.

So I'm currently in the process of making a big batch of Korean pear-applesauce. The kitchen is warm and toasty and smells like the holidays. A good thing on a cold, damp, and rainy day like today. It reminds me of an old children's book we used to have called "Rain Makes Applsauce."

I'll let you know how the final product turns out.
