Pear Sauce: Fun Snack for the Holidays

Pears make for a delicious change of pace from the more usual apple in this easy, fragrant fruit mash. Et it as is, swirl in a dollop of yogurt, or freeze the sauce in small plastic containers for a lunchbox dessert that doubles as an ice pack. It can also be used in some recipes as a substitute for apple sauce this holiday season.
