Scraps and Snippets ~ Ginger Maple Pear Sauce

Rob and I camped over the weekend. It was a perfect few days to spend outdoors. But Friday night found me feeling unprepared foodwise for four meals on the go. So I had to get creative. A couple of Rob's buddies were joining us and they wanted to try out some of our Veg food. Extra pressure for sure.

Creativity and four pears that wouldn't survive the weekend gave me a bit of inspiration. I had plans to make Vegan french toast. And I thought a pear sauce would maybe be nice. I was right.

Maple Ginger Pear Sauce

4 peeled sliced or diced pears
3 TBSP Maple Syrup
1 tsp powdered ginger

Put all in a saucepan. Simmer for about a half an hour. As the pears get softer, begin smashing the bits until the mixture resembles applesauce.

When it is cool, place in a jar and refrigerate. It makes about a cup. Use within a week or so.

We spread it on our french toast and it was pretty delicious.
