So this week I was inspired by a recent trip to Longwood Gardens. Everything was pear themed this year...and I loved it. I am on a huge pear kick now. Sadly these guys are very challenging to grow in NJ or else I'd give it a go.
I used a mix of pears: Bosc, D'anjou, Red D'anjou and Bartlett
This is SO good! A light spice and a nice salty-ness from browned onions.
3 pounds pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
3 tablespoons bottled lemon juice
1 large onion
4 cloves of garlic minced
1 teaspoon to chili flakes (do this to taste...feel free to add more heat)
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 cup apple cider vinegar (5% acidity)
3/4 cup brown sugar
After chopping pears mix in 3 tablespoon of lemon juice and set to the side.
In pot combine onion, garlic, pepper flakes and mustard. Stir regularly (onions will stick if you don't keep stirring) until you get those onions browning a little bit about 5 minutes or so.
