I share my pear trees with the neighborhood deer
They give more than they take

Luscious and unique – that’s how you might describe a pear. Combine it with ginger and you have a flavor combination that’s worthy of the Thanksgiving table. That’s where mine’s going.

Here’s what you need:
Ripe pears
1 T fresh lemon juice
½ t -1 t ground ginger
½ t - 1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla
(notice - no sugar is needed because pears are naturally sweet)

All these pears came from my very own garden -
 the one I share with the neighborhood deer. 

Here’s what you do:
Peel and slice the pears. Simmer them in about ½ C water until very soft. Add the remaining ingredients to taste. The amount of spices depend on the amount of pears you have. Remember – you can always add more, but you can’t remove any…..ginger is spicy, so start with a small amount. Stir and continue to cook for a few minutes. Allow to cool for a while and whirl in a food processor until it’s the perfect consistency. Don’t allow it to become too soft – you don’t want the consistency of baby food! Remember, this glorious sauce is for your Thanksgiving table.
