Ingredients

1 can (15 ounces) pears in heavy syrup
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger root


Place the unopened can of fruit in the freezer until solid (approximately 24 hours; can may bulge slightly). Submerge the unopened frozen can in very hot tap water for 1 minute.



Open the can and pour any thawed syrup into a food processor bowl fitted with a steel blade. Remove the frozen fruit from the can; carefully cut into 8 chunks.



Put the frozen fruit chunks into the food processor; add ginger root. Process until smooth, scraping blade and bowl as needed.


Serve immediately or spoon into a freezer container and freeze until ready to serve.
