What to do with Soft Pears

In cleaning out the fridge, I found some pears that I had bought before going to Utah.  When I bought them they were firm and attractive.  Now they were soft and starting to brown. I decided to can some pear sauce.  No recipe, but just a concoction of pears, water, sugar, a splash of vanilla and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. I peeled the pears and chunked them.  I threw those into a pan with water and cooked for a few minutes.  I used a potato masher to finish the job of smashing the pears.  The texture was a bit chunky, which I like.  I added the sugar, vanilla and spice to taste.  The sauce cooked down to a nice consistency and I canned it in a BWB for 10 minutes.
