Paleo Cinnamon Pears

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar-free and most are dairy free. Welcome to those who are new to seeing my recipes. I have gone grain free and refined sugar-free on orders from a functional medical doctor. My health has improved and I am having more energy.

I wrote this recipe as a side dish to a main dish such as steak or pork chops. This is so good you may want to use it as a dessert. My family eats the meals I prepare for them. They still eat things like chips and desserts. I sometimes make a big dessert to share with my whole family. Other times I just create something small for me to enjoy. You can make a huge batch of this and can it too. I use on top of pancakes, vanilla ice cream, and waffles. Or you can create just a small batch serve with BBQ chicken, Grain Free Chicken Strips or L’s Seasoned T-Bone Steak

Cinnamon Pears with whipped cream and a touch of cinnamon

3 pears about 2 cups of diced pears

1/2 cup of water

1/3 cup maple syrup or to taste

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cardamom

1 teaspoon lemon zest

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup pineapple juice or apple juice

2 teaspoons tapioca flour

1 tablespoon water

Add pears, water, maple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest, and pineapple or apple juice and spices to a pan. Heat up on medium. Cook 15 to 20 minutes depending on how soft your pears are. My pears were hard I had to cook for 20 minutes. Using a potato masher mash a little over half of the pears. If pears are not soft enough to mash cook another 5 minutes. Combine water with tapioca flour and stir until thin and no chunks of flour are left behind (this makes a slurry). Pour the slurry into the pears continue to stir until cinnamon pears are thickened.

Notes: Can serve as a dessert. Optional top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon.
