VeganMofo 2014 #13 - Baked apple and pear dessert



Another very simple and sweet dessert, this one from the McDougall Newsletter. Though all of the McDougall recipes are oil-free, many contain small amounts of salt and sugar, so it's nice to see one that is SOS-free by design. This dessert consists of apple, pear, yam, applesauce, and cinnamon.

For this recipe I used a pear from a tree at the 23rd Street Garden and an apple from Alemany Farm, two places where I do volunteer work. Pears can be frustrating because they can take forever to ripen, and then once they are ripe quickly go rotten. Glad I got the timing just right!
