A Delicious Holiday Recipe!!!


Looking for something festive, delicious and healthy to bring to those holiday parties this season? 
Poached pear cranberry bliss!

4 servings:

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cranberry jelly
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar (modify to your preference)
  • 2 tea bags (I suggest apple cinnamon flavor)
  • 4 ripe but firm pears, peeled and halved with cores scooped out
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
Instructions:


1.   Put the sugar, honey, jelly and tea bags into a big saucepan with 600ml water and bring to a  boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. 

2.   Add the pear halves, then cover and simmer for 12-15 mins until the pears are just tender - poke them with a skewer or the tip of a knife.

3.   Lift out the pears, then turn up the heat, throw in the cranberries and boil for a few mins until syrupy. Discard the tea bags. 

4.   Serve the pears with the warm syrup poured over and a spoonful of plain or vanilla greek yogurt or ice cream (if you made time for a brisk walk that day!)
