What to do on a rainy night

pear sauce

Make brandied pear sauce:

approximately 8 pounds of ripe Bosc pears
2 oz brandy
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground cardamom
2 oz lemon juice

Peel and core pears. Put pears, brandy, cinnamon, and cardamom in a heavy stockpot and simmer until pears are soft. Add lemon juice. Pour into blender and puree, then pour back into stockpot to reduce for about 30 minutes. When it’s lovely and viscous, ladle it into containers (I’m going to freeze these jelly jars–which you can do if the jars are straight-sided).

With a scoop of vanilla ice cream, I bet this tastes like pear gelato. I’ll soon find out!

  1. Hi Amber! You’re welcome, and of course it’s gluten-free too! I bet with some Rice Dream ice cream it would be every bit as good.
