Spring is finally here (I think? #It may snow tomorrow #Don't hold my breath)
I had a few pears left and decided to make a compote out of it so I can store it to use with my oatmeal in the morning. Simply a compote fruit stewed in syrup or sugar. For spring, try making a blueberry, rhubarb, strawberry compote. The possibilities are endless and its a great way to increase your intake of fruit.
Pear Ginger Compote
3 pears firm but ripe, peeled, diced
1 T grated ginger
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp lemon juice
2 T water
1. Place pears, ginger, brown sugar, and water into a heavy bottomed saucepan and cook over low heat until the pears are soft but retain their shape. Remove from heat.
Next time: Add some cinnamon or star anise or lemon or orange peel
