This is delicious! I recently moved and don't have cornstarch or ginger (cumin, dill, and every other spice but no ginger!). I decided to omit the cornstarch and instead I chopped (and mushed) up the pears to thicken the sauce. I also used cinnamon to give it a kick and omitted the mint. I couldn't believe it still turned out fabulous. Thank you!!

MMMM! I love this recipe. I used fresh pears and unsweetened applejuice instead of canned pears in an attempt to try and cut some sugar. The ginger and pears together was were delicious.
