Recipe: Easy Baked Pears

 

The Rogue Valley is a great place for local pears, and this is the time of year to enjoy them. This super easy baked pear recipe pairs these sweet fruits with fat (butter, ghee or coconut oil) to help your body get sustained energy from the naturally occurring fruit sugars and hopefully prevent a sugar crash after partaking in this special treat. 

 

As you can see, even the most discriminating of taste-testers enjoy this dessert, which can be made with no added sugar whatsoever, but will still satisfy that sweet tooth. Start with the basic recipe, and then get creative with the optional additions discussed below, or your own inspirations. Enjoy the bounty of fall!

Ingredients

  • Pears (as few or as many as you like; this dish is so simple, it's still worth it to make for yourself when you're dining alone)
  • Butter (organic, grass fed is best; you can also substitute ghee or coconut oil)
  • Cinnamon (and/or other complimentary spices like nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, etc.)


Optional additions:

  • Sweetener of choice (stevia, honey, maple syrup, etc)
  • Nuts (soaked and dehydrated according to the directions in Nourishing Traditions)
  • Dried fruit
  • Vanilla extract/brandy/bourbon/etc.


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375
  2. Wash the pears.
  3. Cut off the tops.
  4. Remove the core, taking care not to puncture the skin. An apple coring tool is helpful, but also easy to poke through the pear. Begin with a serrated knife and once you have a big enough opening, moved on to a small spoon.You are creating a chamber where your fat will melt and mix with the spices and sweetener, making a rich sauce that you can dip the baked pear bites in as you eat, which is why you don't want to make any holes where the melted fat could leak out. If your pear has some bad spots, that's ok. Just scoop them out and rinse the cavity when you're done.
  5. Stuff the opening with butter, cinnamon and optional additions (nuts, fruit, sweetener, alcohol). If you are using sweetener, remember that pears are very sweet already and only use a small amount.
  6. Place upright in a baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes, or until tender.
  7. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.
