Ingredients

  • 3 lbs pears (about 6 medium pears), peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • 3 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to a simmer and cover. Let mixture cook for about 20 minutes, until pears are cooked through and very tender.
  • Remove from heat and mash pears with a potato masher or fork. If you want a completely smooth sauce, you can put it in a blender and puree.
  • Transfer pear sauce to a bowl and refrigerate until cool. Sauce will thicken a bit as it chills.
  • Serve as a side to a pork dish or as dessert, a snack, or breakfast. I like to serve with a little ground ginger sprinkled over the top.

Notes

  • Kept in an airtight container, this pear sauce should keep in your fridge for up to 5 days.
