Pear-Ginger Sorbet
makes 3 cups, about 5 servings

2 cans (about 15 or 16 ounces each) pears in heavy syrup
2 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger

About 14 hours (overnight) before you are going to make the sorbet, place unopened cans of fruit in the freezer so they freeze solid. Remove the cans from the freezer and submerge into hot water for 1 minute. Pour any thawed syrup into a food processor fitted with the metal blade.

Slide the fruit out of the can and cut into eighths with heavy knife. Place the chunks into the food processor with the ginger. Process mixture until smooth. The ginger will stay in small chunks.

Serve immediately or store in a plastic freezer container to firm up until ready to scoop out (can remain in freezer up to 24 hours). Serve sprinkled with toasted almonds if desired.
