Ingredients


1/2 cup Cane sugar (1/2 cup to 1 cup - can use coconut sugar)
4 medium Pear (Bosc, peeled, cored and halved)
1/2 medium Lemon
2 tbsp Honey, raw
1 piece, 1-inch Ginger root (or 1 tbsp. grated ginger)
10 peppercorn Peppercorn
1 stick(s) Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground cloves

Instructions


In a large saucepan over medium heat, dissolve sugar in 4 cups water. Add pears, lemon, honey, ginger, peppercorns, cinnamon and clove and simmer until pears are fork-tender, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat, let pears cool in liquid, then strain and reserve spiced sugar mixture for another use.

For dessert, enjoy pears on their own or alongside full-fat Greek yogurt, mascarpone cheese or a scoop of high-quality vanilla yogurt. Or try them in one of these dishes.

Note:

Note that while this seems like a lot of sugar, the pears aren’t absorbing that much of it.

 

To make AIP friendly omit: Peppercorn
