Asian Pear Sauce


2 medium Frieda’s Asian Pears, cored, peeled, and cut into quarters
1 slice lemon
4 whole cloves
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons honey


In a saucepan, place Asian Pears with 3 cups water, lemon peel, and cloves. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender.  Remove pears from liquid, reserving liquid. Place pears in food processor or blender; process until smooth. Add 2 to 4 tablespoons of the cooking liquid to the puree until mixture has a sauce consistency. Add lemon juice and honey to taste; serve warm or chilled. Store tightly covered in refrigerator. Use on pancakes, waffles, French toast, over poundcake, apple pie, or ice cream.
