Lime Ginger Pear Sauce
If you love making homemade applesauce in the fall, you need to try this Lime Ginger Pear Sauce. It's easy to make and packed with a delicious tropical flavor that will add a little flair to your fall!
Servings: 6 servings
- 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
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.
- Kept in an airtight container, this pear sauce should keep in your fridge for up to 5 days.
