This is a bladder friendly version of applemos, Swedish stewed and mashed apples, a sweet sauce traditionally served with meat. It is quick to make and especially delicious served hot over slices of pork roast.

2 med. pears (greenish pears, not ripened)
1/3 cup water
3 Tbsp. cup sugar


Peel and core the pears and chop into small pieces. Place pears and water in a small covered saucepan over low heat and simmer for about 12 minutes until most of the pears are quite soft. Add the sugar. Bring to a boil while mashing and mixing the pears. Remove the pears from the heat. Place in a serving bowl or spoon a few tablespoons over each slice of hot pork roast.

Note: Gala apples work ok too if your bladder can handle them. (Without an acid ingredient like lemon juice, the sauce may turn dark if you use apples. It won't affect the flavor though). I've had good luck with freezing any unused portion for a month or two.
