Raw Pear Sauce — Just Sweet Enough

Pears at the peak of ripeness can satisfy your sweet tooth without frying your pancreas or liver. Rich in fiber, they're loaded with vitamins and minerals, as well as flavonoids and phytonutrients which help reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, heart disease, cancers (especially colorectal, esophageal, gastric). Puréed pears are easily digested and an excellent first baby food. Pear sauce is a simple alternative to applesauce:

  • 2 or 3 very ripe organic pears, washed, unpeeled, cored and sliced
  • about 1/4 inch slice fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
  • few dashes ground allspice or clove
  • about 1/4 cup pure water (preferably distilled) or herbal tea, such as peppermint or hibiscus
  • topping (opt.): whole plain yogurt, few dashes ground cinnamon, whole raw walnuts or pecans

Put all ingredients in a blender (except yogurt, cinnamon, nuts) and purée to applesauce consistency. If too thick, add a bit more liquid; too thin, add more pear slices. Serve with a dollop of whole yogurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a whole nut on top. Keeps 3-4 days in the ‘fridge. Makes 4-6 satisfyingly sweet servings.
