I had a crisper drawer full of Asian pears from my tree. This was the first year that tree produced and I didn’t feel like canning them. I came across a similar recipe and decided I would alter it and try the Asian pears instead of using regular pears.
Asian pears are naturally crisper, so even after cooking them they were still a little crunchy, but that was ok by me. Possibly by simmering them longer they would have softened more, but I was happy with the end result – soft on the outside, slightly crunchy in the center and oh so sweet.
Here is the recipe:
- 6 ripe pears, cut into quarters
- 1 cup peach honey wine
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 Tablespoon vanilla bean paste
1. Wash and cut up pears. You can peel them or leave the peels on.
2. Combine all the ingredients except the pears in a stainless steel pan.
3. Bring to a boil and boil for five minutes.
4. Reduce the heat, add the pears and bring to a simmer.
5. Simmer for eight to ten minutes or until pears are fork tender.
6. Cool. Top with whipped cream and serve.
