Apple Pear Sauce

Posted by WFMFresno on Nov 19, 2010


  • 4 small red-skinned apples, cored and cut into eighths 
  • 4 ripe Bartlett pears, cored and cut into eighths 
  • 1 thick slice lemon 
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 4 whole cloves 
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root 


Place apples, pears, lemon, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and water in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer, stirring often, until apples are completely tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove the lemon, cinnamon stick and whole cloves. Let sauce cool slightly. Transfer to a blender and puree until as smooth as desired. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold. Store in the refrigerator.
