Caramel Pear Sauce

This recipe was originally to be an ice cream topper... but I thought it sounded like a delicious waffle topper instead. I am sure it would still be great on ice cream, but I was looking for a new syrup recipe & I thought this would be awesome. And I was right. It was so tasty! Of course, it didn't hurt that it was ridiculously easy and I was able to use a jar of pears that I had canned myself! The recipe calls for a 29 oz. can, but my mason jar was bigger than that. It worked out just beautifully, but if you are afraid of tweaking, I would follow the original recipe.

Caramel Pear Sauce

1, 29 oz. Can Pears, chopped & syrup reserved
3 TBSP Cornstarch
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 Cup Pear Syrup
1/4 Cup butter

Combine cornstarch, brown sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan. Add pear syrup and cook over medium heat until mixtures starts to boil. Reduce heat and cook for 4 or 5 minutes. Add butter and stir until completely melted. Add sliced pears and heat through. Serve warm over vanilla ice cream or waffles.

{this sauce is best warm. If you have to stick it in the fridge,
you can easily warm it up in the microwave before serving}


  1. I can totally see myself loving this! I wish my family would be a little more willing to try new stuff.

  2. mmmm, i want this right now--perfect on top of a Belgian waffle too.

  3. made the syrup/sauce this morning and it was really good! After tasting it, I did add a tiny dash of vanilla but it was delicious either way.
