These tangy pears are delicious over angel food or pound cake, or with yogurt.


½ cup of orange juice

2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

2 tsp. Lemon juice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground ginger

¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp. pink salt

1/8 tsp. ground allspice

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)

3 large Bosc pears (about 1-3/4 pounds) cored, peeled and sliced

Thinly sliced fresh mint leaves (optional) 


In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillets, combine the first nine ingredients and, if desired, cayenne. 

Cook over medium-high heat until butter is melted, 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add pears; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered until sauce is slightly thickened and pears are tender-crisp, 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Cool slightly.  Top with mint.
