Pear sauce, oh my word. I hate to be annoyingly gushy but I’m going to be so please indulge me for a moment. This pear sauce is amazing, sweet, slightly tart with warmth from the cinnamon, simple to make and delicious on just about everything...ok maybe not everything but you get the idea. Try it on pancakes, natural yoghurt, ice cream, porridge, roast chicken...? I’m thinking yes, absolutely. Just grab a spoon and devour the jar. I really don’t know why it has taken me so long to make this. Pears are my favourite fruit at this time of year, making them mushy and sweet couldn’t really go wrong as far as I’m concerned.
I converted this simple recipe for apple sauce from the beautiful blog Elephantine using pears instead. I also halved the recipe which was incredibly stupid of me as the jar was gone within a day and I had to make more. I didn’t add any sugar or honey, it didn’t need it but that’s for you to decide. I left the skins on and once cooked, I did put the cooled pears in my food processor to make a smoother consistency. A blender would also work or you could mash with a fork for a more rustic effect. Do yourself a favour and make some, now.
