Pear sauce has the same texture as applesauce. It's good served over berries, gingerbread, spice cake, or pancakes. Or enjoy it plain-- just like applesauce!

I made this to serve on biscuits for breakfast today. Noting previous reviewers' comments about the thinness of the sauce, I tried to compensate by cutting the amount of water in half. But it was still kind of thin. (Maybe this was because I omitted the lemon rind.) Since I was using this on biscuits, it didn't matter too much though. The biscuits helped soak up some of the excess liquid. Maybe next time, I will play with the amount of cornstarch and see what happens. I'll let everyone know how it goes if I get around to it. Thanks!
