Brownie Brittle Meets Ginger-Pear Marmalade
Recipe type: Condiment
Ginger-Pear Marmalade is fall's answer to the sweet, sticky jams of summer. One of fall's favorite fruits gets a punch of flavor from spicy ginger. Smear over warm fresh bread or crostini for a pre-dinner snack. For a dessert-like treat, spread on graham crackers or better yet — Toffee Crunch Brownie Brittle.
  • 3 very ripe pears, peeled and small diced
  • ½-1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  1. Combine pear, ginger and lemon juice together in a medium sauce pot.
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat for approximately 1 hour or until pear has released its juices and cooked down to a soft, mushy consistency. Make sure to stir every so often to prevent the ginger from burning on the bottom of the pot.
  3. Once the pear has cooked down, reduce to a simmer.
  4. Stir in sugar and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until it becomes a thick, jam-like consistency.
  5. Allow marmalade to cool completely before storing.
