In a skillet over medium-high heat, add butter. As butter melts and begins to foam, add pears. Cook for 2 to 3 min. until pears begin to soften. Add brown sugar and stir to incorporate the sugar mixture, evenly coating the pears. Stir in salt, cardamom, and vanilla extract and gently simmer and stir until liquid becomes syrupy.
Serve over vanilla ice cream garnished with chopped crystallized ginger.
"A friend of mine gave me a sample of the Peruvian Chile Lime seasoning and now it is over. The quality is so good that I just had to find you guys online. I will be trying a few new spices. I hope to be happily satisfied by the new flavors as well. There is no better way for a business to grow than with word of mouth about great quality of products and service! Sending you love from Arizona, keep up the good work!"
