Online at are a number of recipes that I've not found elsewhere, & this is one of them. I use this primarily as an appetizer spread or dip.

Great recipe - perfect combination of flavours. I made it with some preserved pears that were a couple of years old and needed using up. Now we have pears from our own tree so will make again using raw pears with skin and see how that goes.
