Commericial applesauce takes on new flavors with fresh ginger, thyme--and chopped pear. Serve Spiced Thyme Applesauce as a side dish or as a condiment over Sweet Potato Latkes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring often, over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes or until pear is tender. Garnish, if desired.

Step 2

Note: We tested with Musselman's Chunky Apple Sauce. To make ahead, prepare as directed. Cool completely (about 45 minutes). Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 days. Microwave in a microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring at 30-second intervals.

I make this for every family holiday. The favors are so rich and interesting. The ingredients always surprise my guests, but once they try it, they can't get enough! This is a must keep recipe. I do triple or quadruple the recipe. As it is written, it will only serve a family of four.
