Makes 1-2 servings.
- 1 Asian Pear (or any variety of pear, if not Asian pear then increase to 2-3 pears as Asian pears are quite large), peel and cut into bite-size pieces.
- 1 ¼” slice fresh Ginger
- 1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground Cardamon
- 4-6 whole Cloves
- 1 Tbsp. local raw Honey or Agave
Add all ingredients into a saucepan. Add enough water to cover pears. Bring to a boil, then cover and let simmer on low until pear is soft. (Asian pear cook time is approximately 15-20 mins, other varieties only 8-10 mins). Remove the cloves when cooked.
Enjoy as is, and drink the juice, or mash into a pear sauce. Also, you can add ingredients to your liking. For example, add 1-2 tsp. chia seeds and/or ¼ c. quinoa for a heartier meal.
