My family has been on a sugar high, eating our way through an ELABORATE Harry and David holiday gift basket we received a few weeks ago. We just discovered a box of fruit hidden underneath the cakes, cookies, crackers and jams.
The fruit looks like a gigantic pear but not quite. It might be a fruit HYBRID. I’d rather not eat any GMO (genetically modified organism) so I did a google search and convinced myself it looked like the Japanese “La France” variety of pears. Three of us shared one and found it to be super sweet. Since it took so long to find it, the fruit was overripe and we decided to SALVAGE it by making Mystery Fruit Sauce AKA Possibly Pear Sauce.
Adding a tea bag to pear sauce might seem COUNTERINTUITIVE, but it really adds great flavor and besides, what else will you do with mulling spices once the holidays are over?
Possibly Pear Sauce makes a tasty dessert but can also be used as an ingredient in baked goods and as a topping for a wide variety of foods.
Happy New Year!
