Lavender Pear Sauce


Lavender pear sauce is a great recipe to have around during the fall when pears are plentiful. The floral sweetness of lavender mingles with pear and lemon for a sauce that is fragrant, crisp, sunny, and bright. This sauce can be served over pancakes, eaten alone as a casual snack, or dressed up with a drizzle of cream for a fresh and delicious dessert following a Mediterranean meal.

Ingredients
6 pears, about 4 cups when chopped
¼ cup apple juice or cider
2–3 drops Lavender oil
1 small lemon, juiced
¼ cup white sugar (reduce lemon juice to half a lemon and omit sugar for a sugar-free recipe if desired)

Instructions

  1. Peel the pears and chop into about bite size pieces. Be sure to cut off any bad spots or bruises, as well as the core and stem.
  2. Combine the pears, apple juice, white sugar, and lemon juice in a crockpot. Mix until the chopped pears are coated.
  3. Set crockpot to high for four to six hours and cover.
  4. Add Lavender oil. Puree the softened pears with a food processor or an immersion blender until the sauce is your preferred consistency.
  5. If the sauce is thinner than you’d like, you can reduce it in a saucepan over medium high heat, stirring so the sauce does not scorch.
  6. Serve plain, over pancakes, with ice cream, or with heavy whipping cream and a dash of cinnamon. Garnish with a sprig of lavender or a curl of lemon rind.

Tips: If you are short on pears, you can supplement with apples.
