Easy Stewed  Pears Recipe

If you’re looking for a delicious and easy dessert that can be made in just a few minutes, try this stewed pears recipe. It is perfect for when you want something sweet but don’t have much time to cook.


Prepare a lemon water bath by squeezing the juice of 2 lemons into a bowl with 1 cup of water. Quarter, peel and core pears. Place sliced pears in the lemon water bath as you go to prevent browning.


To a pot, add ½ a cup of brown sugar with 1 cup of water, and a cinnamon stick. Stir mixture until sugar dissolves.


Gently add pears to the pot. Add the juice of 1 lemon. Strain any lemon seeds from the liquid. Cover with water. Bring ingredients to a boil over medium – high heat. Once the liquid boils, lower the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until the pears are just cooked.


Test the pears by piercing the flesh with the tip of a small knife. They are ready when the knife easily pierces the pears without resistance.


Use a slotted spoon to gently remove the pears from the liquid and transfer them to a bowl. Strain the syrup and pour it over the pears.


Allow stewed pears to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Best served chilled the next day.
