Made the recipe without any changes, including the raisins. Sliced the pear with a mandolin using the thinnest slicing blade. Loved the aroma.
Served the sauce over sweetened cornbread (recipe #116185) that I had sliced in half . Topped with a frozen yogurt sandwich cut in pieces. (Possibly not the most attractive plating -- however, the taste made up for it! It was delicious).
- 1 large ripe pear, peeled and thinly sliced (or tart apple)
- 1⁄2 cup water, divided
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon raisins (optional)
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 dash ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 slices cinnamon-swirl bread, toasted (doesn't have to be 'swirl')
- ice cream (or whipped cream) (optional)
- Combine pear, 1/4 cup water, sugar and raisins, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until fruit is tender.
- Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; add to fruit mixture.
- Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
- Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve warm over cinnamon toast. Top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
