1 pound pears, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice

Pinch kosher salt

Pinch freshly ground clove

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  1. Place the parsnips, pears, maple syrup, orange zest, orange juice, cardamom, salt, and clove into a microwave safe, sealable 3 to 4 quart container.
