scant lime or lemon juice
*options: slivers of fresh basil or whipped cream or sprinkle on nuts or nutmeg.
Peel, halve and core pears. Sauté in butter and brown sugar and scant lime or lemon juice (add a little rum if you like) until pears have softened but still hold shape well. When sauce has thickened a bit, spoon pears & sauce over vanilla ice cream.
This is delicious as is, or it can be gussied up with slivers of fresh basil or whipped cream or sprinkle on nuts or nutmeg.
