Pear Applesauce with Pork

IMAG1256

5 ripe pears
3 apples
Juice of 2 lemons
2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 cup good maple syrup

Peel and dice pears and apples into bite-sized chunks. Place chunks in a large pot and stir in the juice of two lemons. Add enough water to pot to just barely cover the fruit. Bring everything to a low boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cover and simmer for about 35-40 minutes, or until it starts to thicken. Use a potato masher or a whisk to mash the mixture. If it seems watery, use a ladle to funnel out some of the liquid. Add spices and maple syrup slowly (amount of spice can vary with how big your apples and pears are to begin with) and cook until pear applesauce reaches desired consistency.
Once pear applesauce was finished, I cooked some pork tenderloin slices that were seasoned with salt and pepper to serve with it. I’m DEFINITELY making this again! But I do suggest using an apple peeler.
