  Peeled coarsely chopped fully ripe pears 4 Cup (64 tbs)

  Sugar 3⁄8 Cup (6 tbs) (1/4 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoons)
  Egg whites 6 Large
  Cream of tartar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon

In 2 quart saucepan, mix chopped pears with lemon juice and ginger.
Cook over medium high heat, covered, 13 minutes or until pears are very tender.
Uncover and cook 10 to 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is almost dry and reduced to about 1 cup.
Transfer to blender or food processor with knife blade attached and blend until pureed.
Place puree in large bowl; let cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F.
Brush six 6 ounce ramekins or custard cups with melted margarine or butter; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar.
In large bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until whites begin to mound.
Beat in vanilla.
Gradually sprinkle in remaining 1/4 cup sugar until sugar dissolves and whites stand in stiff peaks when beaters are lifted.
With rubber spatula, fold one third of whites into pear mixture.
Fold in remaining whites.
Spoon mixture into ramekins.
Place ramekins in jelly roll pan for easier handling.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until souffles are puffed and beginning to brown.
