Cinnamon Pear-Applesauce
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 4 very ripe pears
  • 2-4 ripe apples
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • sugar, to taste (I used ½ cup)
  1. Peel and roughly chop the pears and apples, then combine with cinnamon sticks and sugar in a saucepan. Bring just to a boil, then simmer on medium low until the fruit is soft and the liquid has evaporated a bit. Remove cinnamon sticks and mash or puree to desired texture.
  2. Enjoy warm with pork or chicken, or cold as a dessert. May also be spooned over ice cream as a topping.
