We had a turkey dinner this weekend, and to make up for the missing cranberry sauce, I whipped this up in five minutes. IT WAS SOOO GOOD! It makes a fabulous accompaniment to a meal or an equally satisfying dessert.
- 1.2 or one full tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- five chopped ripe pears
- juice of half a lemon
- five chopped dried figs that have been softened in boiled water for several minutes (All the above ingredients were organic, upping the appeal of this dish : )Add all ingredients to saucepan. Using low heat, cook for three to five minutes. Blend gently to desired consistency.
I have a hand-held blender made by Braun that makes mixing soups and sauces easy as can be because I can use it right in the pan…no transferring to blender.
