Lemon-Ginger-Pear Sauce/Dressing

Lemon-Ginger-Pear Sauce

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.
