Yield: 8 Servings
2 t Fresh lemon juice
1 c Cranapple juice
Halve, peel, and core the pears. Sprinkle freshly cut pears with lemon juice to prevent
browning. Place in microwave-safe dish and cover with cranapple juice. Cover and cook on
high 6 - 8 minutes or until pears are fork tender. (Check the pears after 6 minutes; the
fresher the pears, the longer they'll take to cook.) Spoon juice over pears, cover, and
let stand 30 minutes or refrigerate overnight.
I love the texture and buttery flavor of poached pears. This microwave poaching method is
so simple that sometimes I buy a big bag of pears and poach them all at once. They can
then be refrigerated and covered and eaten as snacks throughout the next week. Bosc and
Bartlett pears are the best varieties for poaching.
This is a nice holiday recipe because the cranberry juice turns the pears a pale pink
color. These pears are pretty garnished with some fresh mint sprigs. This recipe is best
made at least 30 minutes in advance to give the pears time to cool.
