I always make big batches of applesauce in the fall but this pear sauce is a nice alternative. Just as much as I love apple and cinnamon together, I think pear and ginger complement each other perfectly.
You can serve this as a side dish with pork or chicken. You can also use it in place of applesauce in any recipe you have. My son and I enjoy eating it by itself or swirled into Greek yogurt for a healthy dessert or snack.
- 8 ripe pears, peeled, cored and diced = 6-8 poires, épluchées, épépinées et coupées en morceaux
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger = 1 cuillère à soupe de gingembre frais râpé
- ½ cup water or juice (pear or white grape) = 120 ml d'eau ou de jus de poire ou de raisin blanc
Place pear chunks in a large pot. Add ginger and water or juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat and simmer covered until fruit is soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cool slightly and purée with an immersion blender. Serve at room temperature. Enjoy!
