This would make a great Thanksgiving side dish! Sweet, chewy and crunchy with a nice tang from the OJ. A touch of salt would do this great! Unless you use salt pecans! As for the pecans I did rough chop them. I cut the pear into matchsticks using only one pear (one just because I didn`t read the ingredients right) to match the parsnips and carrots. Loved the sweetness! Garnished with Crystallized Ginger , Ginger Syrup & Ginger Sugar. Thanks!
Very delicious! I can't have berries or nuts so I left those out. When I put in the pears, they released their juices and what was going to be glaze turned into a sauce. I probably should have reduced it, but I couldn't wait. My guest really enjoyed this dish too. Thank you for a great new way to eat these veges.
