Pear Sauce for Pancakes or whatever!

I like to have pancakes for breakfast a couple times a month. In an effort to avoid processed foods, I usually just top my pancakes with pure maple syrup. Quite frankly, the sugar rush just doesn't agree with me so I thought I'd try something less sweet like a fruit topping. This pear sauce is not too sweet and the consistency is similar to applesauce but not so thick. Maple syrup is used to sweeten the sauce. I was pleased with the results.

2 fresh pears
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1-2 TB maple syrup, to taste

Peel pear and cut fruit away from stem and core and put in small saucepan with lemon, apple juice, and cinnamon. Mash up and cook for 5 minutes. Add 1 TB of the maple syrup. Take off heat and blend with immersion blender. Taste. If not sweet enough add another tablespoon of maple syrup.
