This week's basket of fruits and veggies from Bountiful Baskets, brought me pears among other amazing goodies. I am not too familiar with creating warm dishes with fruit but it's getting chilly out, so warm dishes are a must!

This pear sauce is similar to applesauce but totally different, considering I don't particularly care for applesauce. The next time I have Sunday Morning Pancakes, I'm going to top them with this pear sauce instead of maple syrup.

What I Used:

  • 4 -5 large pears, cored and coarsely chopped, with skins still on (about 4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (Technically, not vegan. I rarely use Honey and when I do, I never feel guilty about it)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Cinnamon, to sprinkle on top
What I Did:
  • Cook pears over medium-low heat, covered, for a few minutes until they start to release all their juices. Then uncover and continue to cook until pears are soft.
  • Mash or puree to get your desired texture - I like to leave it kind of chunky.
  • Stir in honey and vanilla, mix well.
  • If your sauce isn't as thick as you'd like it, then continue to cook for up to an hour or so to evaporate more of the liquid.
  • You can store leftovers in the fridge, tightly covered, for up to 2 week. You can also freeze it.
