Pear Sauce

It’s so sweet, just a delight.

This summer we’ve had an unusual treat–pear sauce.  A friend has been bringing us pears from an abandoned tree near his home.  These are big green pears that don’t ripen well.  But peel them, slice them and steam them in a pan of water and the woody rocks turn into pear sauce you can fight over.

Sometimes it’s so easy to turn a lazy eye to an odd ball food that isn’t easy to deal with.  Spend a little time and effort, though, and you might just find a way to feed your family a tasty treat.

Please don’t send me any cactus fruit, though.

About onlifeandbeans

I like to make the adventure taste good by cooking tasty, wholesome food. Most of what I've learned in cooking, I've picked up from cookbooks and lots of practice. (Thank you, Fannie Farmer, for the right start. ) I so appreciate cookbooks that tell how and why to do something; that's why I do the same for my readers. I want to know what is in my food. I want my family to sit down and share a meal together. I want our food to taste good. Home-cooking takes time, but it gives back rich dividends in budget minding, good health and familial love. One meal at a time.
