Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped peeled fresh pears
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
