Recipe: Gingered Korean Pear Sauce

Recipe: Gingered Korean Pear Sauce

This recipe was originally developed as an applesauce substitute to accompany latkes during Hanukkah, but this condiment also can accompany any dish that calls for that sauce.

This recipe originally was published on YouTube as a bonus toward the end of the Korean Latke video four years ago. If you are a visual learner, you can fast-forward to the 4:23 mark to watch me make the recipe for you.

Gingered Korean Pear Sauce


1 Korean pear, peeled and grated
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) ginger, grated
1 tablespoon (15 ml.) butter
2 tablespoons (30 ml.) brown sugar
1 tablespoon (15 ml.) lemon juice
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) orange or lemon zest


  1. Put all the items in a bowl and mix to combine.
  2. If you have leftover pear sauce after your guests have gone home, you can use it on pancakes, French toast or ice cream.


  1. I taught my mom how to make your sauce and she was so impress. It makes me feel so great about my cooking skill although in the end I admitted that I just copied your recipe.
