Pear Crisp with Candied Ginger

Looking for something a little different to bring to your next summer BBQ?  Pears aren’t just for Fall.  They’re delicious and in my opinion they should be eaten all year long because they’re one of my favorite fruits.

The candied ginger adds a little punch of spice every few bites.  Serve this with a side of vanilla ice cream in the summer or with whipped cream in the fall.  It’s the perfect dessert any time of year.

Oh, and since pears aren’t exactly in season right now, it’s okay to substitute with canned pears.  Just make sure you get the ones that are packed in natural juices and not in syrup.  It will be too sweet if you use pears packed in a syrup.

Pear Crisp with Candied Ginger



  • 1/2 cup sugar*
  • 2 T cornstarch*
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon*
  • 1/4 tsp salt*
