This baked pear recipe get’s me thinking. I don’t know exactly why – but we never really had pears when I was growing up. I used to have fun carving apple jack-o-lanterns, writing messages on banana skins, and trying to catch grapes in my mouth, but I can’t remember ever having a pear until I was in my early teens. Maybe my mom didn’t like them? Maybe they were too expensive?

Now that I’m in charge of my own grocery shopping, I buy pears almost every week. They are definitely one of my absolute favorite fruits – and baked they are even better.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°, wash and dry your pears.
  2. Put the pears on a baking sheet and coat with honey. You can use a basting brush, or just drizzle the honey and let it drip down.
  3. Sprinkle the pears with cinnamon and let bake for 30 minutes.
  4. While the pears bake, prep the fruit compote. Wash and dry your blueberries and strawberries, making sure there are no stems.
  5. Combine the berries and agave nectar in a food processor or blender and mix until smooth (you could also hand mask with a potato masher in a large bowl).
  6. Set the fruit compote aside and begin the hard sugar decoration.
  7. Combine water in a small pot over medium heat. Once combined, let it come to boil for 5-10  minutes or until it is a golden color.

  8. Using caution (hot sugar WILL BURN like none-other) gently pour the sugar onto a lightly greased baking sheet or silicone mat. Drizzle it in whatever design you like.
  9. Once done, remove the pears and plate them with the compote, and top with the sugar crips!
