I enjoy a nice simple desert and poached pears can be just that. Todays recipe comes from my mom who is a master in the kitchen. (Thanks Mom)
This recipe is not baked in the oven but cooked on the stove top for a faster dessert. The amount of each of these ingredients are up to you, just adjust per your taste.
2 Pears any kind will be fine.
Raspberries fresh or even frozen will do
Cinnamon, Nutmeg per your taste
Agave syrup or Honey
Butter (not margarine)
Wash Pears slice in half removing center, add cinnamon, nutmeg, sweetener, butter. Put in a skillet with small amount of water, cover. Cook for about 15 minutes then add raspberries cover once more, cooking for about 10 more minutes.
Remove from pan sit back enjoy a simply wonderful dessert.
