Pear Butter

If you've never had pear butter before, you need to stop whatever you are doing and make this today! 
3 lbs. or about 10 ripe pears, peeled, cored and diced
3 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. lemon juice or 1 lemon
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
pinch of groud nutmeg
1 tsp.  ground cloves
Stir first three ingredients together in a medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 50 minutes, covering so that the lid is slightly open, and stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on the mixture so that the bottom does not burn. Once it has reduced slightly and thickened, remove from heat and add spices then transfer to a food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Transfer to canning jars or a heat-proof container, seal, and refrigerate until ready to use. Keep for up to a week.
