Pear Cream – light dairy cream substitute
« on: May 12, 2016, 06:36:47 am »
I have picked up this recipe, or versions of this recipe, in a couple of places recently.  It is really simple and quick and I find it much lighter and easier to digest than many other dessert creams – both dairy and non-dairy options.

If you have time soak the cashews for a few hours beforehand, but this isn’t vital.  If you have soaked them, rinse them before you use them.

You may not need all of the pear juice so hold some back … you can always put more in if needed, but you cannot take it out of it is too runny.

1 440 g can pears in juice (not syrup)
1 cup raw cashews

Put the pears, juice and cashews into the TMX and zap on 9 – 10 for 2 minutes to make a lovely smooth cream.  Add more pear juice if it is too thick or gluggy (you can add water as well, if you want).

Refrigerate until you need it.  My last lot was still good when we finished it 3 days later

I can just imagine this slathered on an Apple Pie.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
