Apples in Pear Nectar
2 apples (Gala or Fuji) peeled and cut into thick slices
½ cup pear nectar
Splash of orange liqueur (Gran Gala or Grand Marnier)
Put all ingredients in a pan. Turn stove burner to medium. Cook, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid evaporates, leaving about a tablespoon as a sauce.
What a wonderful winter side dish or dessert (just add whipped cream!). Because of the nectar, sugar is not needed. And since the apple slices are thick, they maintain their shape. I betcha this would make a great pie filling, too.
