    KK - Chef #426156's Note:

    This sauce is so very different than traditional sauces and is one of my favorites. It was published in a local newspaper along with Grand Marnier Cranberry Sauce with Oranges as suggestions for 'new' sauce ideas, and I've been making them both ever since. Because grocery store pears are rarely ripe when purchased, it is best to buy them a few days ahead so they can sit on the counter and ripen up. Unripe pears just don't work in this recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. The cardamom gives a traditional Thanksgiving meal a touch of the exotic!
