Pear butter with canned pears?

I hit a great sale and got a case of canned pears for a cheap price. The problem: my boys think they taste funny. My solution is to make pear butter and cross my fingers that they can't still taste the off-brand flavor.

My question: any thoughts or suggestions on using canned pears in a pear butter recipe? I've only ever used fresh pears.
Update: I'd also love to hear your suggestions on what else I can make with a case of canned pears besides just eating them plain.
