Pear Ginger Compote

My unseasonal fruit cravings have me heading straight for the freezer to a stash of summer fruit.

With bags of cherries, blueberries and strawberries, I am dreaming about sunshine and long days.

I’ve been so obsessed with warm weather fruit that I completely forgot about 4 Bosc pears hidden in a refrigerator drawer for at least the past 2 months.

Despite all that time, those hearty pears were still in pretty good condition. I made a batch of pear ginger compote.

The zippiness of minced fresh ginger and a crisp Pink Lady apple gave the mellow pears a pleasant kick.

The compote ended up swirled in yogurt and oatmeal, but it was at its best paired with walnuts on a buttermilk waffle.
