Purple Pears…perfect any time of the year!

These delicious baked pears are a sure hit, especially this time of the year.

Makes 8
Preparation time: 8 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Serving suggestion
Serve with a dollop of reduced fat vanilla yoghurt or a scoop
of reduced fat ice cream. Or refrigerate and serve cold on your
breakfast cereal.

Ingredients

• 4 medium pears
• 400 ml dark grape juice

Equipment needed
• Chopping board
• Measuring jug
• Medium knife
• Oven mitts
• Ovenproof dish
• Serving bowls
• Teaspoon
• Vegetable peeler

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2. Peel the pears and cut each in half
from the top to the bottom.
3. Using a teaspoon, carefully dig out
the core.
4. Place the pears, cut side up, in a small
ovenproof dish and pour the juice over.
Bake, uncovered, until the pears are
tender and the edges are lightly brown
– about 25 minutes.
5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 4 minutes
before serving.

Quick tips
• To make golden pears,
use apricot nectar instead
of grape juice.
• The delicious syrup will
thicken even more when
the pears cool down.
If not using at once,
cover with cling wrap
(or transfer to a storage
container) and refrigerate
until needed. Don’t keep
them longer than 2–3 days.
