This is a good way to use your ripe or over ripe pears. I use this for my pear bar recipe. It can also be used in preparing low fat baked goods. Make a lot and freeze it while the pears are in season.
- 6 cups pears (pared, cored and diced, any variety)
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat.
- Bring to a boil.
- Cook 10-15 minutes or until pears are tender.
- Puree in blender and store in fridge or freezer.
This recipes was so simple and delicious, my kids were fighting over it. I added a little cinnamon and used brown sugar. Thanks!!!
I was given a bag of pears from a neighbour's tree and decided to make pear sauce. This was exactly the kind of recipe I was looking for and it worked beautifully. Thank you very much for posting.
This is yummy! I used it in a pear bread recipe and the bread turned out delicious. I also like the sauce by itself.
